Rattle in Barbican

We heard Simon Rattle in the Barbican tonight. His Berlin Philharmonics were playing Dvorak, Ades, and Janacek. Tomas Ades is a young British composer whose piece Tevot had his UK debut. The piece was backed by a full orchestra, in Strawinksy style.

This article in the tagesspiegel reviews the German premiere. Probably a bit harsh on Ades, it hit the point that Dvorak was the strongest performance of the evening, and in a long time.
