Simon Rattle conducts Stravinsky and Berio

Igor Stravinsky’s Pulcinella is perhaps the most charming fusion of Baroque music and classical Modernism. Following this performance with Simon Rattle, one critic wrote that the conductor was “in his element, working with virtuosity as the Russian sharpens rhythms and raises energy levels”. Luciano Berio’s Coro, where the new and the old are also brought together – if in a totally different way, forms an ingenious contrast.
