Rattle conducts Bruckner 9

Music, Classical and opera

Sir Simon Rattle conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in

Messiaen's 'Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum'; and Bruckner's Symphony No 9. (Bruckner died in 1896 leaving his Ninth Symphony unfinished; a deeply religious composer he dedicated the work to God, and its devotions fittingly end in mystery. Messiaen's monumental 1965 work also meditates on death and resurrection.). Note: at 6pm in the Barbican Hall, a pre-concert performance: Guildhall Artists, the Heath Quartet and violist Adam Newman, perform Bruckner's String Quintet in F; free.)
