Sir Simon Rattle
David Weininger of the Globe had a chat with Berlin Philharmonic conductor Sir Simon Rattle in advance of the orchestra's appearance at Symphony Hall this Sunday:
"Rattle is especially glad to be reconnecting with Boston. He nourishes fond memories of the orchestra - 'I had the best time there, I tell you' - and especially of Symphony Hall. He found the 2007 concert [by the Celebrity Series with Ben Heppner and Thomas Quasthoff] so satisfying that 'all of us in Berlin felt, we have to play there again.'"
Read all of For Rattle, things look up as he looks ahead.
