    “Late Night” concert with Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kožená

    This Late Night concert with Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kožená is delicate, enigmatic and virtuoso. The concert opens with Ravel’s gently flowing songs based on poems by Stéphane Mallarmé. Vocal artistry is in demand, in contrast, in Berio’s Sequenza III. The main work on this evening is Berio’s spherical Laborintus II for voices, instruments and tape.

    Thriller, chamber play, romantic drama: Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande is all of this and much more. The New York Times wrote about this performance with Simon Rattle: “The result surpasses even the expectations raised by the Bach Passions . Mr. Sellars’s staging completely captures the human essence of Maurice Maeterlinck’s play. The singers are as fine as one could wish for.”

    Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Second Symphony

    Hardly a work is closer to Simon Rattle’s heart than Gustav Mahler’s monumental Second Symphony, which he conducted in a student performance when he was only a teenager. The press wrote about this 2015 performance that it was “philosophically underpinned and intoxicating at the same time, colourful, overwhelming”. In addition, we take a trip through the magical sound spaces of Helmut Lachenmann’s Tableau for orchestra.

    Simon Rattle conducts “Manon Lescaut”

    Giacomo Puccini’s Manon Lescaut is a shocking tale, told in softly melting vocal lines and seductive orchestral colours. Following staged performances at the Baden-Baden Easter Festival, the audience of the Philharmonie had the opportunity to enjoy a concert version in April 2014. Sir Simon Rattle conducts an illustrious ensemble of singers with the magnificent Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role.

    The eponymous heroine of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut shifts constantly between true love and her lust for luxury, and inspired the composer to create music full of passion and drama, ravishing melodies and seductive instrumental colours. This highlight of the second Easter Festival in Baden-Baden is conducted by Simon Rattle with Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role in a production by Sir Richard Eyre.

    Following their acclaimed performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars also presented a staged version of the St John Passion in February 2014. The concert, which struck a balance between contemplation and dramatic power, received standing ovations and was judged by the press to be a “new Easter miracle”. Mark Padmore as the Evangelist heads a spectacular ensemble of singers.

    Bach’s “St Matthew Passion” with Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars

    Bach’s St Matthew Passion in the staging by Peter Sellars is one of the landmarks of the Simon Rattle era with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In this haunting version, Bach’s monumental work is not only explored from a new perspective; in a way never seen before, the Philharmonie itself proved to be a great venue for staged performances. This recording comes from the second series of performances in October 2013.

    Mozart’s Magic Flute was the highlight of the first Easter Festival in Baden-Baden in April 2013. Following the festival, the musicians also gave a concert performance of the production in which the singers enchanted the audience with both their vocal and dramatic skills. Simon Rattle also revealed himself to be an excellent interpreter of Mozart, bringing out the whole transparency, tonal beauty and drama of the score.

    With a memorable performance of Mozart’s Magic Flute, Sir Simon Rattle opened the first Easter Festival in Baden-Baden in March 2013. The Financial Times spoke of a “top-drawer cast”: “Pavol Breslik is all you could wish for in a Tamino, Michael Nagy’s Papageno is charismatic and lithe, Kate Royal gives Pamina subtle complexity as well as grace.”

    Probably no other opera contains so many “hits” as Carmen. Yet despite its popularity, there is always something new to be discovered in the work – which is also the case in this 2012 performance from the Philharmonie. Here, Simon Rattle presents Carmen not as an overblown grand opera, but brings out the many nuances of the score, its lightness and refinement. The main roles are sung by Magdalena Kožená and Jonas Kaufmann.

    Delicate melancholy characterises this concert with Simon Rattle. Mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená sings songs by Dvořák and Mahler which find the greatest intensity of expression through concentration and restraint. The same applies to Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, which combines mourning with Baroque grace. A similar approach but with a more voluminous sound is to be found in Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony with its intense world-weariness.

    With this concert from 2011, Simon Rattle launched the Philharmoniker’s Late Night series. A nocturnal mood is created in particular by de Falla’s Impressionist vocal scene Psyché and Dallapiccola’s Piccola musica notturna – whose title means nothing other than “Little Night Music”. The two works by Luciano Berio, in contrast, the Sequenza V for solo trombone with Olaf Ott and the Folk Songs with Magdalena Kožená, are colourful and lively.

    In 1973, a student at the London Academy of Music persuaded his fellow students to perform Mahler’s Second Symphony under his direction. The acclaimed concert drew attention to the young conductor for the first time: Simon Rattle. In this recording from 2010, Rattle performs the work with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The programme also includes Schoenberg’s harrowing melodrama A Survivor from Warsaw.

    The critics’ reviews of this St Matthew Passion in the Philharmonie were full of superlatives. The radio station RBB Kultur considered it to be “a moment of glory for Rattle! And one of the best evenings with the Philharmoniker for years.« Media praise didn’t stop at the Berliner Philharmoniker and their principal conductor but extended to what is called the “ritualization” by American star director Peter Sellars.

    The 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth fell on 27 January 2006. In order to pre-empt the occasion Sir Simon Rattle had prepared an all-Mozart programme for the New Year’s Eve Concert of the Berliner Philharmoniker on 31 December 2005. He and his orchestra were aided and abetted by a team of internationally acclaimed vocal soloists and by the American star pianist Emanuel Ax.
