'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 Szeps-Znaider) to contemporary fare such as the music of Helen Grime, 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.' Gramophone
