The Berliner Philharmoniker and Simon Rattle Play Beethoven and Strauss

Berliner Philharmonie | 10785 Berlin

In his Oboe Concerto, Richard Strauss magically succeeds in composing in the spirit of Mozart and Schubert without denying his own artistic identity. Simon Rattle performs the work with the Philharmoniker’s principal oboe, Jonathan Kelly, and then presents Beethoven’s oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives, which conveys less spiritual devotion than opera-like expression, such as in a dramatic scene that describes the arrest of Jesus Christ.

Berlin Philharmonic and Simon Rattle interpret Beethoven and Strauss

Berliner Philharmonie | 10785 Berlin

In his Oboe Concerto, Strauss succeeded in an almost magical way in composing in the spirit of Mozart and Schubert without denying his own artistic identity. Simon Rattle interprets the work with the philharmonic solo oboist Jonathan Kelly. He then presents Beethoven's oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives, which conveys less spiritual devotion than operatic expressiveness, for example in a dramatically escalating scene depicting the arrest of Jesus.
