Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Second Symphony

Hardly a work is closer to Simon Rattle’s heart than Gustav Mahler’s monumental Second Symphony, which he conducted in a student performance when he was only a teenager. The press wrote about this 2015 performance that it was “philosophically underpinned and intoxicating at the same time, colourful, overwhelming”. In addition, we take a trip through the magical sound spaces of Helmut Lachenmann’s Tableau for orchestra.
