Simon Rattle conducts “Bluebeard’s Castle”

Béla Bartók’s only opera Bluebeard’s Castle sounds enigmatic and dark. This is a spectral psychological drama, clad in an impressionist music rich in allusions. The vocal soloists at this performance with Simon Rattle are Rinat Shaham and Gábor Bretz. As a counterpoint there is – with Emanuel Ax as soloist – a new piano concerto by HK Gruber, whose style is characterised by subtle wit and jazzy swing.
