Another clip from Sir Simon Rattle’s farewell concert with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in 1998.

Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 is performed by the Hallé Orchestra under Markus Stenz this Thursday at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, part of the complete cycle marking the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

  1. I have a jealously guarded old VHS recording of this I made at the time. Not a devotee of Sir Simon but on this occasion I was left totally shattered by this stunning performance.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I’m off to see the Hallé tonight.
