EDITORS’ NOTES

The LSO, reinvigorated since the arrival of Sir Simon Rattle in 2017, is one of the gems of the London musical scene, flexible and idiomatic in a vast range of music. Their musical sympathies range from Mozart (whose violin concertos they’ve recorded with impressive finesse alongside Nikolaj Znaider) to contemporary fare such as the music of Helen Grime. That journey is made via a superb La Damnation de Faust under Rattle—maintaining this orchestra’s tradition as the Berlioz ensemble par excellence—and a thrilling Shostakovich Symphony No. 8 under Gianandrea Noseda. From their earliest days, the LSO have actively championed recordings, and with their own label, LSO Live, that desire lives on.
