“I’m crazy about Haydn,” Simon Rattle once said. And in fact, there are few other conductors with such a deep understanding of this composer. During this concert, Sir Simon conducts the Symphony No. 102, which is striking because of its heartfelt slow movement. Igor Stravinsky is also extremely important to Simon Rattle, who presents unfamiliar facets of the composer with a Stravinsky Journey he compiled himself.
