Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Fifth Symphony

Gustav Mahler’s Fifth Symphony owes its popularity to the Adagietto, a movement full of tenderness, dreaming and hopeful longing. Yet it is easy to overlook the many facets of the other movements: the vehemence of the second and third movements, and the exuberant high spirits of the finale. The press described this performance with Simon Rattle simply as “breath-taking” and “deeply moving”.
