Sibelius cycle, Berlin Phil. Rattle

Recommended Posts

I don't know if you lot can get BBC Radio 3 but we're currently listening to the Rattle's Sibelius cycle at the Barbican. So far it's a disappointment, lacking in subtlety, heavy handed, more like Mahlerian stodge (I admit to not being a fan) than the light, airy, powerful music Colin Davis brought out with the LSO twenty odd years ago.

Probably true, but Rattle did tremendous stuff with the CBSO at a time when no-one else would look at them. I just feel that he's been overpowered by Berlin Phil.

I am going tonight and tomorrow -- hope it gets better. Anyway, as sneak says, the orchestra sounds good anyway.
