Rattle: Twentieth Century Masters.
In tonight's concert, recorded on Sunday at London's Barbican Hall, Simon Rattle conducts late works from four composers which show that even on the brink of death, they were still capable of vital, even surprising, bursts of creativity, not least from the 103-year-old Elliott Carter.
