Written and presented by Sir Simon Rattle, the foremost British conductor of our day, this series forms a fascinating introduction to, and overv
iew of, the music of the 20th century.
In Volume 7: Threads, Sir Simon Rattle presents an ecclectic, and very personal selection of works by 20th century composers like Berio, Henze, Kurtag, Gubaidulina and Birtwistle to illustrate the rich variety of new musical trends he believes pave the way to the future.
The disc includes three special extras: a Biographies of the Composers feature, and an Audio Track of Mark-Anthony Turnage's "Drowned Out¨ (EMI recording with Rattle and the CBSO), as well as a picture gallery.
