NB Change of Conductor

Sir John Eliot Gardiner is obliged to reduce his forthcoming concert schedule for personal reasons and is unfortunately now unable to conduct the LSO at the Barbican on 20 October. However he will still conduct the Orchestra’s concert on 24 October. The LSO is very grateful to Kazushi Ono for agreeing to step in at short notice to conduct on 20 October. Both programmes remain unchanged.
