Simon Rattle conducts Brahms, Schoenberg, Berg and Webern

Brilliant, but non-sensuous: that is many concertgoers’ opinion about the music of Arnold Schönberg and his pupils Alban Berg and Anton Webern. This concert, in which Simon Rattle presents orchestral pieces by the three composers, shows just how wrong they are: virtuoso music of overwhelming expressiveness. One important inspiration for Schönberg’s circle was Johannes Brahms, whose sun-drenched Second Symphony ends the concert.
