Simon Rattle brings Berlin to Boston / WBUR - The Artery

Bookmark and Share

Twenty-five years ago, the 36-year-old curly-haired Liverpudlian conductor Simon Rattle led the Boston Symphony Orchestra in one of the greatest Mahler performances I ever heard. He is now on tour with the Berlin Philharmonic, and on Friday, Nov. 11, the Celebrity Series of Boston is presenting at Symphony Hall the program I'm most eagerly looking forward to all season. We'll now have another opportunity to hear Rattle conduct Mahler's Seventh Symphony, this time with a different great orchestra and, for those of us with long memories, to discover if his interpretation has changed over the past 25 years.
