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'

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.

Sir Simon Rattle originally rose to fame with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, before beating Daniel Barenboim for the post of principal conductor at the Berlin Philharmonic. He is also a regular guest conductor for both the Vienna Philharmonic and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is the resident orchestra of the Barbican Centre, and has been in operation since 1904 – London’s oldest surviving orchestra.
