Sir Simon RattleSir Simon Rattle originally rose to fame with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra before beating Daniel Barenboim to the post of Principal Conductor at the Berlin Philharmonic. He is currently Music Director of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Born in 1982, Lang Lang is the critically acclaimed young Chinese pianist who has played with leading orchestras throughout Europe, the United States and China. His dazzling technique and flair have helped him achieve an almost rock-star status, making him one of the most high-profile of classical musicians.
