Simon Rattle conducts Rhapsodies at the Waldbühne

The rhapsody is a very special musical genre: its main principle being its lack of principles – unbound by any formal requirements, a composer can indulge himself, lose himself in dreams, and be as poetic as he pleases. In 2007, Sir Simon Rattle conducted some of the best examples of the genre at the Berlin Waldbühne. At the same time, this concert is a kind of “hall of fame” of virtuosos of timbre, such as Chabrier, Delius, Rachmaninov, Dvořák, Debussy and Enescu.
