Season opening 2008: Simon Rattle conducts Brahms and Shostakovich

The Berliner Philharmoniker and Simon Rattle opened the 2008/2009 season with two of the most different symphonies imaginable. On the one hand, Brahms’s Third, about which Clara Schumann wrote that one is “surrounded by the mysterious magic of life in the forest”, and on the other, the darkly aggressive Tenth Symphony by Dmitri Shostakovich. The recording from August 2008 is the first made by the Digital Concert Hall team.
