Conductor: Sir Simon Rattle
Symphony No. 8 in C minor (Haas edition)
Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker have already performed Bruckner’s Seventh and Ninth Symphonies to great acclaim. With the Eighth there follows the composer’s most extensive work. It acquires its tremendous energy from the interplay of wave-like escalations – the piling up of monumental blocks of sound and falling back into melancholy brooding. The evening will open with a new short work by Simon Holt.
