LONDON, March 3 (Reuters) - International conducting star Simon Rattle said on Tuesday he would become music director of the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) in September, 2017, confirming one of the biggest open secrets in classical music.

Rattle's post as principal conductor at the Berlin Philharmonic ends in 2018 while the LSO's principal conductor, Valery Gergiev, winds up his posting this year. Gergiev will continue to conduct the LSO while Rattle will start taking over during the interval.
