Simon Rattle and Christian Gerhaher

Primitive power as if from a wild, faraway past mixes with the vibrancy of the modern in Leoš Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass. An eye to the past and the future is also evident in Gustav Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen which combine innovative expression with a Romantic, folk-like sound. The soloist is Christian Gerhaher. The conductor is Simon Rattle, who also presents Witold Lutosławski’s Second Symphony.
