Simon Rattle conducts Bruckner and Widmann

Bruckner’s Sixth was long one of the composer’s most underrated works. According to Sir Simon Rattle, that was because it does not fulfil the typical expectations of a Bruckner symphony. It is shorter, with less pathos than usual. And Bruckner himself thought that the Sixth was his “sauciest”. Simon Rattle also conducts the world premiere of a horn concerto that Jörg Widmann, Composer in Residence, wrote for Stefan Dohr.
