The London Philharmonic Orchestra's new season begins in September each year - heralding the start of a busy schedule of concerts in London, across the UK and around the world.   Timothy Walker, the LPO's Chief Executive and Artistic Director, explains how this complex jigsaw puzzle of elements is solved.   Considerations include festivals and season-wide repertoire themes, artist availability, major tours,  repertoire clashes in London and abroad, providing a range of concerts for our varied audiences, nurturing new artistic talent and balancing the finances!
