I can't comment on the performance, but should point out that the heavy lifting of interpretation has been done (or should have been done) in rehearsal. I imagine Rattle was trying to motivate playing of the appropriate attitude, something beyond simply playing the notes.
I think the Rattle phenomenon has been largely a British phenomenon. As Rattle himself has admitted, he is overprone to micromanagement and concentration on detail. It is sad that, given this self-knowledge, he hasn't become a less fussy conductor. But I'll always be glad of his Berlin recording of Mahler 10; a real and lasting success.
