Simon Rattle conducts Schumann, Wagner, Ravel, Debussy and Ligeti

This programme of this concert under the direction of Simon Rattle could be headlined “magical sounds”. The works in the first part all soar high above the temporal world: Ligeti’s atmosphères, Wagner’s Lohengrin prelude, Debussy’s Jeux and Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé. The concert closes with Schumann’s “Rhenish” Symphony, a work of energetic urgency, but here too there are many ambiguities and shifts in emotion.
