Simon Rattle conducts Schumann and Dutilleux

Hopeful enthusiasm and flashes of disturbance and depression: the fusion of these contradictory states characterise Robert Schumann, not only as a man but also as a composer. They are also evident in both his “Rhenish” Symphony and the overture to the opera Genoveva which Simon Rattle conducts in this concert. Plus, soloist Barbara Hannigan sings Henri Dutilleux’s mystical, filigree song cycle Correspondances.
