Simon Rattle conducts Berlioz’s “Symphonie fantastique” in 1993

It is no exaggeration to claim that this live recording from November 1993 is a document of historic importance, for it is the first visual and acoustic record of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s work with the man who was to become their chief conductor. The performance shows a young Simon Rattle who inspires the orchestra to perceptive interpretations of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique and Jean-Philippe Rameau’s suite Les Boréades.
