Returning to Hill Auditorium for the first time since 2009, the Berlin Philharmonic and music director Simon Rattle embark on their last US tour together, bringing two concerts to Ann Arbor. For the first program, they perform Pierre Boulez’s Éclat, a tribute to the late titan’s death earlier this year, paired with Mahler’s seldom-performed Symphony No. 7. The second program spotlights the remarkable path that music took in Vienna throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
