Sir Simon Rattle presents a triptych of Alban Berg’s early masterpieces with Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony.
Three short but intense works by Berg capture the ambition and talent of a composer who drew together the fascinations of Vienna at the dawn of the 20th century – among them love, dreams, night and nature – reflecting a remarkable epoch in viscerally expressive music.
Engineered with unmatched symphonic finesse, Beethoven set aside ruminations on fate and heroism to compose his utterly musical Seventh Symphony, a fresh and vital contrast to Berg’s Modernism.
