Sir Simon Rattle presents a double-bill of works by Leonard Bernstein, to celebrate the centenary of the Orchestra’s former President. First up, Rattle is joined by pianist Krystian Zimerman for the symphony inspired by W H Auden’s ambitious book-length poem, The Age of Anxiety. After the interval, the Chorus join the orchestra on stage for one of Bernstein’s lesser-known musicals, Wonderful Town. This is nevertheless a swinging, bluesy, fun and uplifting piece, with five Tony Awards to its name. A sunny and good-humoured work, it tells the story of two sisters seeking success and bright lights from their basement apartment in New York City.

Sir Simon Rattle discusses his thinking behind his programming for the London Symphony Orchestra’s 2017/18 season.
