Philharmonia make a pitch for the LSO audiencemain
People leaving the Barbican last night after the opening Rattle LSO concert faced a row of freesheet hustlers trying to thrust the Philharmonia’s season programme into their hands.
This opportunistic gesture may backfire.
All the who’s who of British arts were at the Rattle concert.
They, like me, may have thought the Philharmonia pitch smacked of desperation.
