Simone Young conducts Bruckner and Rihm

Simone Young prefers to conduct Anton Bruckner’s symphonies in their original versions: “Perhaps these are not as perfect as the later ones. But they have a modernity that the later ones lack.” Here she combines the original version of the Second Symphony with Wolfgang Rihm’s nocturnal scene Das Gehege. This sombre one-person piece is about a woman who, on the eve of German reunification, frees an eagle from its captivity, tries to seduce it, and ultimately kills it.
