Overview

This collection presents four classical concerts by the Berliner Philharmoniker originally mounted and performed between 1996 and 1999 at venues across Europe. It begins with a 1996 event at St. Petersburg, Russia's Mariinsky Theatre, that finds the Berliner interpreting highlights from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet and the "Cavatina" from Rachmaninov's opera Aleko, as well as Beethoven's "Violin Romances" (led by Kolja Blacher) and "Seventh Symphony" (led by Claudio Abbado). A 1997 concert at the Opera Royal du Chateau de Versailles finds the eminent Daniel Barenboim conducting the Berliner in interpretations of Ravel's "Le Tombeau de Couperin," Beethoven's "Symphony No. 3 in E Flat Major" and Mozart's "Concerto for Piano in C Major K 415." The third concert included here, which took place on May 1, 1998 at Stockholm, Sweden's Vasa Museum, finds Claudio Abbado conducting the Berliner plus two vocal ensembles - the Swedish Radio Choir and the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir - in performances of Wagner's "Overture from Der Fliegede Hollander," Tchaikovsky's "Symphonic Fantasia, Op. 18" from The Tempest, Verdi's "Quattro Pezzi Sacri" and Debussy's "Trois Nocturnes." Finally, a 1999 Berliner concert at The Church of Our Lady in Krakow, Poland finds Bernard Haitink conducting the symphony in interpretations of Schumann's "Symphony No. 1" and Chopin's "Concerto For Piano No. 2," with support by solo vocalists Emanuel Ax and Christine Schafer.
