Sir Simon Rattle

Sir Simon Rattle's arrival in London heralds a new era for the LSO. To mark his inaugural season as Music Director of the Orchestra, and as Barbican Guildhall Associate Artist, we bring you This Is Rattle, ten days of celebratory events of which everyone can be apart.

Visit to discover music and videos from across the celebrations, as well as three playlists, handpicked by Sir Simon himself and inspired by the his concert programming. As the Orchestra tackles three of Stravinsky's ballets, Simon's final playlist looks at the rich history of Russian music.
