Live Performance On 180g Vinyl LP!

When Bernstein celebrated his 70th birthday, Krystian Zimerman was asked to perform Symphony No. 2 (The Age of Anxiety) with Bernstein for the first time. Full of praise for Zimerman’s performance, Bernstein asked the pianist to perform the piece again when the composer turned 100. To fulfill that promise, Zimerman released this recording of Symphony No. 2, performed with the Berlin Philharmonic and conducted by Simon Rattle in his last appearance as its chief conductor.
