The London Symphony Orchestra under music director Simon Rattle performs a spine-tingling all-Bartók program. The Concerto for Orchestra, a tour de force of modern music, highlights the entire virtuosic ensemble. Hungarian bass-baritone Gábor Bretz and Israeli mezzo-soprano Rinat Shaham depict the legendary Bluebeard and his wife, Judith, in a transfixing one-act opera-in-concert, exposing terrifying secrets and the sheer power of the human voice.
“All this was delivered with razor-sharp precision and unflagging zest by the London Symphony Orchestra under Simon Rattle’s incisive direction.”– Times (U.K.)
“Mezzo-soprano Rinat Shaham was a riveting presence. Her voice has brightness, depth and allure. And the way she opened up her lower register in the last act was stunning.”– Pittsburgh Tribune
