The World's Greatest Music
Past conductors of the esteemed orchestra have included Wilhelm Furtwängler, Herbert von Karajan, and Claudio Abbado. Now, with Simon Rattle at the helm, the orchestra continue to create and record some of the best classical music in the repertory. Listen and download our pick of the best recordings.
Karajan's Berlin Philharmonic recording of Mahler's earth-shattering Symphony No. 9 won the Orchestral Record of the Year at the Gramophone Awards in 1981, and Bernstein picked up a Grammy in 1993 for his remastered 1979 recording. It's a hard act to follow for Simon Rattle's 2008 recording, but it's a masterful interpretation of the music - unsentimental and thoughtful.
