“Every kind of orchestral sound that can tickle and seduce the ear was there,” said The Telegraph of Sir Simon Rattle conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker. Rattle and the orchestra premiere a new work by Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas and conclude their Schumann symphony cycle with the quintessentially Romantic “Rhenish” (inspired by the Rhine River), and the rarely performed 1841 version of the composer’s Symphony No. 4. This original scoring features lighter orchestral textures and was much admired by Brahms.
