Plácido Domingo performs Spanish music with the Berliner Philharmoniker
Berliner Philharmoniker, Waldbühne 2001

In 2001, at Waldbühne, world-famous tenor Plácido Domingo conducts the Berlin Philharmonic in works, which have always been particularly close to his heart, for a complete Spanish programme.

The concert features fabulous violinist Sarah Chang, who combines power of expression with a clean fingering technique, performing virtuosic show-pieces such as Sarasate's “Carmen Fantasy” and “Gypsy Airs”. The programme also included a collection of delightful “Zarzuela” arias, sung by Ana Maria Martinez, winner of the Plácido Domingo Vocal Competition in Barcelona.

This film captures the unique atmosphere of the Berlin Philharmonic’s annual summer concert at the Waldbühne, Berlin. This very successful open-air concert has become a regular event in Berlin’s social calendar.
