Introduction/abstract

London Symphony Orchestra · Sir Simon Rattle

LIGETI · WAGNER · WEBERN · BRAHMS

An artfully curated programme, in true Simon Rattle style, concludes the London Symphony Orchestra’s guest appearance. Airy, sweeping, pushing up to the light – ranging from Ligeti’s epochal «Atmospheres» via gems from Wagner to Brahms’ Symphony No. 2. An unusually upbeat score for melancholic Brahms, he joked that it should be printed with a black border.
