Notes and Editorial Reviews

Simon Rattle as a man of experiment and discovery: back in the 1980's the now head of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra explored the territory connecting jazz with classical music – accompanied by well- known names like George Gershwin or Leonard Bernstein, and also less well-known ones such as Darius Milhaud. Today, Rattle's Jazz Album is among the highlights of his discography.
