• 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.
