Simon Rattle conducts Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony and Modernist concertos

“Finest drawing, subtle humour, heartfelt singing, and when they needed to let rip, they really let it rip,” was how one critic praised Simon Rattle’s interpretation of Beethoven’s Pastoral. In addition, the concert includes Lutosławski’s Double Concerto and Dutilleux’s Violin Concerto with the mysterious title The Tree of Dreams with Leonidas Kavakos as the soloist – exceptional works of the 20th century full of brilliance and magic.
