A different way to experience the LSO, with a burst of music to kick-start your evening: one piece introduced by the conductor, a relaxed atmosphere, and digital programme notes to delve deeper into the music while we play.

In this Half Six Fix: Sir Simon Rattle, Magdalena Kožená and Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins. Pride is for the wealthy – if you want to succeed, you put it aside and give them what they want. When time are tough, there’s only one way to get ahead; Bertolt Brecht knew that back in 1933, and Kurt Weill set it to music that stings, even through every fabulously memorable tune.

This is The Seven Deadly Sins, born in the dying days of Weimar Berlin, premiered in Paris and yet somehow just as urgent right here in London in 2022. Magdalena Kožená sings Weill’s insidiously catchy melodies, music that evokes a world of satire, sleaze and naked self-indulgence. Social comment has never been so shamelessly entertaining.

'The London Symphony Orchestra’s regular Half Six Fix is a quick shot rather than the full classical cocktail: one hour; one symphony; no messing around.' (inews)
