Three giants of classical music come together on the stage of the Berliner Philharmonie for an all-Beethoven program that was destined to go down as one for the ages. Experience the incomparable Daniel Barenboim, Itzhak Perlman, and Yo-Yo Ma in masterpieces of the composer's œuvre for soloists and orchestra.
Filmed in 1995 at the Berlin Philharmonie, this once-in-a-lifetime concert pairs two of Beethoven's less-performed works: the Concerto for Piano, Violin, Violoncello and Orchestra in C major (often simply referred to as the Triple Concerto) and the Choral Fantasy for Piano, Choir and Orchestra in C Minor. Accompanied by the prestigious Berliner Philharmoniker and the Chor der Deutschen Staatsoper, the three musicians give these two works the sumptuous and virtuosic treatment they deserve.
