Orchestra, Chorus: City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, London Sinfonetta Voices
Conductor: Sir Simon Rattle
Director: Peter West, Barrie Gavin
DVD Specials: Biographies of the composers (in D, F, GB); Audio Track of Mark-Anthony Turnage's "Drowned Out" (EMI recording with Rattle and the CBSO); Picture Gallery

With musical excerpts of: Berio: Laborintus II, Henze: Symphony No. 8, Kurtág: Grabstein für Stefan, Birtwistle: Ritual Fragment, Turnage: Drowned Out, Knussen: Flourish of Fireworks, Gubaidulina: Zeitgestalten Written and presented by Sir Simon Rattle, the foremost British conductor of our day, this series forms a fascinating introduction to, and overview of, the music of the twentieth century. Each of the seven programmes features over thirty minutes of specially-shot music in performance, with Rattle conducting the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Volume 7 In Threads Sir Simon Rattle presents an ecclectic, and very personal selection of works by 20th century composers like Berio, Henze, Kurtág, Gubaidulina and Birtwistle to illustrate the rich variety of new musical trends he believes pave the way to the future. “If anything is important, it is just to remind people to listen, and be patient, and listen again. Samuel Beckett says “Ever fail, try again, fail better”. We cannot see everything, we cannot hear everything at once, but we can approach it and attack it with joy and wholeheartedness and every step is a journey to understanding.” Sir Simon Rattle
