The prestigious Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of Claudio Abbado for a concert dedicated to Beethoven.
Claudio Abbado conducts two emblematic works composed by Beethoven in the breathtaking Berliner Philharmonie concert hall. The Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 19 with the Russian pianist Mikhail Pletnev whose dazzling technique adding to a delicate sensitivity merges instinct and intellectual rigour, and the Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125 with the exceptional soloists Karita Mattila, Violeta Urmana, Thomas Moser and Eike Wilm Schulte.
