Simon Rattle conducts Roberto Gerhard and Antonín Dvořák

During his tenure as chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Simon Rattle frequently presented Dvořák rarities. One more such work will be heard at this concert: the graceful yet dramatic Scherzo capriccioso, which the orchestra last performed in 1933. The folk-style, richly coloured “American” Suite, on the other hand, has never been on the programme; its affinity with the Symphony “From the New World” is unmistakable. Another novelty is the music of the Catalan composer Roberto Gerhard: a student of Schoenberg, whose works fascinatingly combine avant-garde and Spanish sounds.
