Sadly, it’s time for the third and concluding part of our Rattle Tour 2012 video diary.
Here, we feature interviews with Katherine Spencer (Bass Clarinet), Anthony Robson (Oboe) and Claire Holden (Violin) and rehearsal footage of Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Sir Simon Rattle and of course, our lovely Orchestra.

The last few days of our visit in St Paul were the most exciting as after all the preparation the performances of Goebbels’ Songs of Wars I have seen were finally to take place.
For both the Friday and Saturday night concerts in the Ordway Center, the St Paul Chamber Orchestra led from the piano by Pierre-Laurent Aimard performed Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto.
