Simon Rattle, conducting the esteemed London Symphony Orchestra, brings the “roaring climaxes, perfectly balanced brass, sumptuous lower strings” (Financial Times) he’s known for to Mahler’s Ninth Symphony, a heartrending revelation by the late-Romantic composer and his last completed score.

The Program

“The Symphony No. 9, benefiting from the new richness of the LSO strings under Rattle, closed with rapt beauty.”
– Financial Times
