Season opening 2010: Sir Simon Rattle conducts Mahler and Beethoven

With this performance of Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony from 2010, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Simon Rattle started a performance of all of the composer’s symphonies, marking both the 150th anniversary of Mahler’s birthday on 7 July 2010 and the 100th of his death on 18 May 2011. What is of particular interest in this cycle, is that each Mahler symphony is paired with another major work – in this case, Beethoven’s Fourth.
