Live from the Barbican Hall, the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon
Rattle perform Mahler's Sixth Symphony and a world premiere by Mark-Anthony

Since his '60s Liverpool childhood when the Mahler revival was getting
under way, Simon Rattle has been obsessed with his music and has become one
of the world's leading Mahler conductors.

Rattle has paired this darkest of Mahler's symphonies with another of his
passions, new music. Ever since Mark-Anthony Turnage was the City of
Birmingham Symphony Orchestra's Composer in Association in the early 1990s,
Rattle has championed his music and premiered many of his most important

Tonight's world premiere is 'Remembering', a memorial for Evan Scofield,
the 25-year-old son of Turnage's long-time musical collaborator and close
friend, John Scofield. It's a substantial and deeply-felt work in which,
says Turnage, he has at once tried to reflect Evan as an original and
positive person and to 'reconcile something very personal and private with
a statement experienced in a public space'.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.
