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.
