Notes From Hidden Britain, Ben Fogle's exploration of the classical music heritage of the nation, took us to Liverpool
Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conductor Sir Simon Rattle is a Liverpool lad. Born in the city, he is a former junior percussionist with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. The young Rattle was a passionate follower of the RLPO and gained valuable early experience playing with and listening to the orchestra.
