The Waldbühne in Berlin, one of the most appealing outdoor amphitheatres on the European continent, is the home of the Berliner Philharmoniker's summer concerts. With over 20,000 attendances, these are some of the most popular classical music concerts in the world.
This year they present under the baton of Riccardo Chailly works by Shostakovich, Rota and Respighi. Chailly is famous for having one of the broadest repertoires in the business, ranging from the orchestral highways of Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner through to the 20th century byways via Bach, the core operatic repertoire and almost anything else – he is an omnivore, with the brilliance to match.
