Simon Rattle conducts Berio and Bartók

To help contain the coronavirus, the Philharmonie has been closed since 11 March. A last concert under the direction of Simon Rattle could still be given – but without an audience in the auditorium, exclusively and free of charge for visitors of the Digital Concert Hall. It opened with Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia, which plays creatively with sounds, noises and language. The highlight of the programme is Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, which shifts between melancholy and vigorous rebellion.
