The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO), founded in 1904, is the oldest of London's symphony orchestras. It was set up by a group of players who left Henry Wood's Queen's Hall Orchestra because of a new rule requiring players to give the orchestra their exclusive services. The LSO itself later introduced a similar rule for its members. From the outset, the LSO was organized on co-operative lines, with all players sharing the profits at the end of each season. This practice continued for the orchestra's first four decades.
"Rattle led an utterly beguiling performance full of entrancing details. Most importantly, the orchestra sounded extremely happy without being allowed to run away with the music." - The Times (UK)
