Simon Rattle conducts Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony

Anton Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony is not only the composer’s most extensive work, but also one of his most striking. Its tremendous energy derives from the interplay of wave-like climaxes – from the building up of monumental blocks of sound which subside into melancholic brooding. In 2017, Simon Rattle performed the symphony for the first time with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The concert opened with a new short work by Simon Holt.
