Simon Rattle conducts Beethoven, Haydn and Widmann
Gloom and exuberance – these emotional extremes are to be found in both Haydn’s Symphony No. 95 – one of the few orchestral works by the composer in a minor key – and Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony with its famous Allegretto. Between these two classics, Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker perform Jörg Widmann’s Flûte en suite, infused with Baroque charm, with Emmanuel Pahud as the soloist.
