Still in his mid-forties, Rattle becomes Music Director of the Berlin Philharmonic in 2002. What is the secret of his success, which has propelled him from being a Liverpool schoolboy with a fierce enthusiasm for getting orchestras together to his present stature as an internationally sought-after musician?

Nicholas Kenyons biography, first published in 1986 to critical acclaim, is fully updated and expanded with new chapters charting Rattles move from his eighteen years historic partnership with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra to his new post in Berlin. Kenyon also talks to friends and colleagues about what makes Rattle one of the most powerful musical communicators of our time.
