First concert in the Brahms/Schumann cycle with Simon Rattle

Complete performances of the symphonies of Brahms and Schumann have been among the most outstanding events of the Simon Rattle era with the Berliner Philharmoniker. Here, the orchestra and conductor directly juxtaposed the symphonies of both composers, creating an intriguing double portrait. This concert, with Brahms’s and Schumann’s symphonic debuts, marks the beginning of the cycle.
