Sir Simon Rattle will be conducting the London Symphony Orchestra at Barbican Hall, alongside the world famous pianist Lang Lang.
They will be performing two nights of classical works by Wagner, Bartok and Haydn.
Wagner — Prelude and Liebestod from 'Tristan and Isolde'
Bartok — Piano Concerto No 2
Haydn — Excerpts from Symphonies No.s 45, 64 and 90; 'The Creation' and 'The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross'
Sir 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.
The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is the resident orchestra of the Barbican Centre and is the oldest of London’s symphony orchestras. It was recently rated by Gramophone as one of the top five orchestras in the world.
