Sir Simon Rattle conductor
ABOUT THIS CONCERT
This concert has been cancelled due to regulations implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2002, Sir Simon Rattle succeeded the MCO's Founding Mentor Claudio Abbado as the Chief Conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Now, 22 years after Abbado first conducted our orchestra, it is finally the time for Rattle, an artist at the height of his career, to make his MCO debut.
Known for his vivid interpretations that draw listeners even closer to the music, Sir Simon Rattle will conduct Mozart's final two symphonies. This tightly-unified set leads through the Great G-minor towards the celestial finale of the Jupiter, music that on its way reveals all the qualities that make the MCO's Mozart performances so special: freshness, agility, and poise.
