The Berliner Philharmoniker, Simon Rattle and Karita Mattila at the “Proms”

“Britain’s favourite musical son was back where he belonged,” was how The Independent described the three concerts given by Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker at the BBC “Proms” in the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2010. The intriguing programme ranged from the voluptuous sounds of late Romanticism to the pioneering expressiveness of the Schoenberg school. The soloist in Richard Strauss’s Vier letzte Lieder was Karita Mattila.
