The Waldbühne in Berlin, one of the most appealing outdoor amphitheaters on the European continent, is the home of the Berliner Philharmoniker's summer concerts. With over 20,000 in attendance, they are some of the most popular classical music concerts in the world.

In 2009 about 22,000 people had come together at the Berlin Waldbühne to enjoy the traditional summer picnic concert. The theme of the evening was "Russian rhythms," and star conductor Sir Simon Rattle, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Yefim Bronfman, one of the most famous pianists in the world today, presented a superb selection of Russian music.
