Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra have been adjusting to life at home, but they havemissed playing together. Simon was supposed to have been attending the wedding of his old friend Figaro but sadly couldn't travel there. The LSO players suggested doing a special online concert for him and Simon agreed to conduct!
The time arrives for online sectional rehearsals and all the players gather online but... Where's Simon?
The players can't rehearse without Simon so, instead of sitting around waiting, they introduce their instruments: we'll find out how they work, why each LSO player thinks their instrument is the best, and how they sound individually as well as within the various instrument families.
