Sir Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Symphony No. 2

In 1973, a student at the London Academy of Music persuaded his fellow students to perform Mahler’s Second Symphony under his direction. The acclaimed concert drew attention to the young conductor for the first time: Simon Rattle. In this performance, Rattle performs the work with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The programme also includes Schoenberg’s harrowing melodrama A Survivor from Warsaw.
