Simon Rattle and Vienna Philharmonic at Barbican

I often become overwhelmed by the experience whose quality is so rich and tactile that I truly wish if only I had knowledge and words to express my sensation with satisfactory eloquence.

Simon Rattle’s concert with Vienna Philharmonic at Barbican was as such. Admitted that I was not familiar with any of the pieces played, I found the orchestration beautifully conducted with incredible balance.

At the same time, however, I often felt it was 'aptly managed' rather than mind-blowing. This is where knowledge on the music as well as the characteristics of the parties involved would have helped me to understand how so.

On the whole, I can declare that, with my limited experience admitted, this was the best orchestration I have heard in the flesh and indulged my auditory sense with tremendous pleasure.

Having read some reviews, I was most interested in and in agreement with this review by Andrew Clark at FT, although I thought 3 stars does not quite justify the night’s collaboration of those who are extremely talented.
