Conductor admits elements of event known for its flag-waving and patriotic anthems made him uneasy
Simon Rattle has said he avoided conducting at the Last Night of the Proms throughout his career because of his discomfort at its “jingoistic elements”.
In an interview with Radio Times, the conductor – who announced earlier this year he would be leaving the London Symphony Orchestra and relocating to Germany – said nationalistic aspects of the event left him “uneasy”.
