    Krystian Zimerman and Simon Rattle perform Bernstein’s “The Age of Anxiety”

    As chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Simon Rattle has impressively shown again and again what variety and richness are couched in the term “modern music” – and he does so again at this concert. We hear three short premieres, enter the world of film and television with Robin Hood and Tom and Jerry, and experience Bernstein’s jazz-influenced Second Symphony, with world star Krystian Zimerman as piano soloist.

    Krystian Zimerman plays Brahms

    Krystian Zimerman is someone who looks for the truth behind the notes with a ruthless unwillingness to compromise – which is why all of his recordings are a precious rarity. Here, we present his performance of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 from June 2015. The performance with Sir Simon Rattle is as multifaceted as Brahms’s work: floating poetically, spirited and forceful, but always infused with the dark introspection of late Romanticism.
