Simon Rattle conducts Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra

Simon Rattle conducts one of the most impressive works of the 20th century with Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra. The terminally ill composer, who fled to the USA to escape the National Socialists, presents himself here sometimes melancholically, sometimes ironically – to then again, quite surprisingly, unleash youthful freshness, verve and joie de vivre. The concert opens with Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia, which creatively and unconventionally plays with sounds, noises and language: a mysterious musical labyrinth.
