Simon Rattle, now head of the Berlin Philharmonic, gave us some wonderful recordings with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra while he was their leader for many years.

Ravel’s “Boléro” and “Daphnis et Chloé” show Mr. Rattle to be a terrific conductor who creates amazing music out of these colorful scores.
