Sir Simon Rattle marries two works of extraordinary intensity, played back-to-back in just one hour in this early-evening Half Six Fix concert, and introduced on-stage by the conductor.
Nightingales, dreams, lugubrious summer days and darkened valleys – the sounds and ideas that fascinated fin-de-siècle Vienna spiral together in Alban Berg’s Seven Early Songs. Composed 80 years earlier in the same city, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is like a ride in a Ferrari, hurtling towards symphonic triumph with unapologetic brilliance.
This concert is part of Half Six Fix, a different way to experience the LSO, with an introduction to the music from Sir Simon Rattle, and digital programme notes on your phone or device. Grab a drink, take your seat and enjoy the music.
These concerts start at 6.30pm and last for one hour, without an interval, featuring a short programme of one or two major works, which the conductor will introduce from the stage.
To bring you closer to the action, we’ll have screens to showcase the performers and programme notes available electronically on your Android or iPhone device. You can also enjoy the music with a drink in your seat.
