We can totally recommend watching this on @BBCiPlayer. It features Queen Victoria's piano, which @houghhough plays… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
We had a surprise visitor at our afternoon rehearsal yesterday at the Royal Festival Hall, when Principal Artist Vladimir Jurowski dropped by. He’d been rehearsing with the LPO in the morning so stayed on for our rehearsal with Sir Simon Rattle in the afternoon. Projects Manager Ceri Jones managed to get a quick pic on her phone (hence the quality!) of the two of them in conversation. Some of you may remember that about 2 years ago Vladimir conducted Schumann’s Symphony No.3, Rhenish with us, so maybe he was comparing notes with Simon.
The Orchestra has had a day off today and then we’re off to Brussels tomorrow on the 09.57 from St Pancras, look out for tour reports coming soon.
