Alain Altinoglu, Musical Director of the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, Brussels, conducts a trio of Russian works on Thursday 10 October. Ahead of his appearance at the Barbican, we chatted about his time in Brussels, performing as a pianist and how he got into conducting.
Ahead of his solo performances of Prokofiev's Second and Third Piano Concertos with the LSO this autumn, we caught up with pianist Denis Matsuev to talk about the great Russian composers, performing with Gianandrea Noseda and the magic of the stage.
At the LSO, we are proud to have been Classic FM’s Orchestra in the City of London for over 17 years. Each season, a selection of our concerts come recommended by Classic FM. Here’s our round-up of autumn’s Classic FM recommended concerts and a look at where the music sits in the LSO’s history.
