Sir Simon Rattle conducts Mahler and Rachmaninov The Singapore Concert


Relive an exceptional moment in music history with this stunning 2010 concert from the gorgeous Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, where Sir Simon Rattle, director of the Berliner Philharmoniker from 2002-18, led that storied ensemble in their first-ever stopover in Singapore.

On the program, a mighty work to match the grand occasion: Gustav Mahler's "Titan" Symphony No. 1. This gargantuan, overflowing symphony is served to perfection by the signature sound of the Berlin Phil, celebrated the world over for their depth and quality. Next, Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances—the final major work by the Russian Romantic great—get an impeccable and impassioned reading under Sir Simon's baton.
