Mahlers Ninth: London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle
Sir Simon Rattle brings his new orchestra home to Symphony Hall, in Mahler’s Ninth Symphony.
If there’s one artist who needs no introduction at Symphony Hall, it’s Sir Simon Rattle. This is his first visit to Birmingham since he became music director of the London Symphony Orchestra, and naturally, they’re playing Mahler.
In other words, this concert is self-recommending. In the 1990s, Rattle, Mahler and Symphony Hall were practically synonymous. But he’s a conductor who always has something new to share with us. And since no London venue compares to Symphony Hall, this will be a rare chance for UK audiences to hear this new partnership in a truly world-class acoustic.
Please note there will be no interval.
The London Symphony Orchestra is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading orchestras.
Its many activities include an energetic and ground-breaking education and community programme LSO Discovery, a record company LSO Live, a music education centre LSO St Luke's and pioneering work in the field of digital music.
Since its formation in 1904 it has always attracted excellent players from all over the world, many of whom have flourishing solo, chamber music and teaching careers alongside their orchestral work. The LSO draws on an enviable roster of soloists and conductors, including Principal Conductor Valery Gergiev and Principal Guest Conductors Daniel Harding and Michael Tilson Thomas.
