In one of his final Carnegie Hall appearances as the Berliner Philharmoniker’s music director, Sir Simon Rattle conducts a program that spotlights the remarkable path music took in Vienna throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Brahms’s Second Symphony is a warmly melodic work in the Classical tradition of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. A trio of Viennese composers, who were also the principal members of the Second Viennese School, looked to that tradition and took it to the next level by writing music that mesmerizes with shimmering colors, daring harmonies, and unique textures.
