Krystian Zimerman & Sir Simon Rattle

Berliner Philharmoniker


Forever young: Lenny’s finest symphony.
When Krystian Zimerman and Sir Simon Rattle perform Leonard Bernstein’s Second Symphony, they are paying homage to a friend – and to Bernstein’s masterpiece, a sort of Mahler symphony with jazz piano. The work has an inner storyline: it is about young people who set out to find themselves, but not before losing themselves first in bars. Leonard Bernstein was a composer who embodied youth. His music is at once sexy and despairing. In keeping with this spirit, Sir Simon Rattle will be presenting the work in two concerts: today with Beethoven’s Seventh, his dance symphony, and on April 1 with the “Eroica” which, with its youthful boldness, bursts in forcefully upon the scene.
