LSO Principal Guest Conductor Daniel Harding leads the LSO in Bruckner’s Third Symphony, the work which marked a major artistic breakthrough for the Austrian composer.Bruckner dedicated his third symphony to fellow composer Wagner who was his great inspiration.

Acclaimed Norwegian pianist  Leif Ove Andsnes ‘came very late’ to Mozart’s piano concertos: ‘I somehow was not mature enough to enjoy this music fully … now it is the greatest joy to play.’ Mozart’s gift, unmatched by anyone since, was to make music of exquisite beauty and craftsmanship appear effortless; but so much lies underneath the trademark serene simplicity.
