Season opening 2012: Simon Rattle and Yefim Bronfman

In the words of one critic, the performance of Witold Lutoławski’s Third Symphony, with which Simon Rattle opened the season 2012/13 was a “pleasure”. And in fact, this is a wonderful case of uncompromisingly modern music which at the same time excites with its atmosphere and vitality. The concert opens with Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto with Yefim Bronfman who brings out both the powerful and the delicate sides of the work.
