Simon Rattle: Echoing an era
Sir Simon Rattle was chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker for 16 years, and the unusual length of this time alone gives his tenure the feeling of an “era”. But also in a qualitative sense, this was a special chapter in the history of the orchestra. This is shown in Eric Schulz’s documentary, which traces the many highlights and achievements of Sir Simon’s Berlin years in interviews, concert excerpts and archive material.
