Live from the Barbican, London, Simon Rattle conducts the Berlin Philharmonic in Sibelius: Symphony No 3 in C, Op 52; Violin Concerto (with Leonidas Kavakos); Symphony No 4, Op 63.

Live from the Barbican Hall, London, introduced by Martin Handley.

In one of the great orchestra-conductor partnerships of our time, Simon Rattle conducts the Berlin Philharmonic in the second concert in their Sibelius cycle. Their 2015 London residency celebrates both Rattle's sixtieth birthday and the 150th anniversary this year of the birth of Sibelius, a composer close to Rattle's heart.
