Sir Simon Rattle concludes his two-year Perspectives at
Carnegie Hall with concerts that feature the music of
composers with whom he has been closely associated over
the course of his illustrious career.
In his final New York performances as music director
of the legendary Berliner Philharmoniker, he leads the
orchestra in Mahler’s urgent and elusive Symphony No. 7,
revelatory works from the Second Viennese School, and
Brahms’s tender yet expansive Symphony No. 2. Rattle
also conducts Mahler’s dramatic and rapturous Symphony
No. 6 with The Philadelphia Orchestra—another ensemble
with which he has earned tremendous acclaim. An energetic
innovator and proponent of daring repertoire, he leads
Ensemble ACJW in Hans Zender’s fascinating reimagination of
Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise with tenor Mark Padmore.
