A Message from Kathryn McDowell, Managing Director of the London Symphony Orchestra
Sir Simon Rattle has tested positive for COVID-19 and unfortunately is unable to fulfil his engagements with the LSO this month.
He is currently isolating at home, with mild symptoms. We send him our very best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Rattle will be replaced in the next three concerts by Bournemouth’s Kirill Karabits.
