So excited for this concert!
A very special moment for me, being my first performance with my dad on piano.

    The party piece of Sir S.

  • Unvaccinated says:

    And next in tonight’s concert, Simon Rattle plays Rachamaninoff’s 3rd Piano Concerto also conducting from the keyboard.

  • Joel Kemelhor says:

    Congratulations — but your dad should not be climbing onto the piano…

  • DG says:

    The guy in the upper left photo looks like someone is microwaving a tuna sandwich right near him.

  • MacroV says:

    I did not know Sir Simon had a son who is a clarinetist (and good one, if this clip is any evidence).


    Actually pretty commendable that this is their first performance together (at least with Sir Simon on piano; don’t know about podium) given Sacha is 39 YO.

    Best wishes to Sacha. Lovely clarinettist.

  • Jean c. Kroeber says:

    Congratulations to you, Mr. Rattle, and congratulations to both of you on this rare achievement.

  • Peter San Diego says:

    The programme looks promising, too. Wish I could be there…
