Simon Rattle conducts “Gurre-Lieder”

Arnold Schoenberg is primarily known as the founder of twelve-tone music. However, with his 1899 Gurre-Lieder, based on a wild and romantic folk tale, he showed himself to be a master of the voluminous musical style of late Romanticism. Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker presented the work here as the finale to the Philharmonie’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
