Program notes

In 1993, the Berliner Philharmoniker's beloved summer concert at the Waldbühne paid tribute to some of the greatest Russian music of the 19th and 20th centuries, under the direction of the legendary Seiji Ozawa. The orchestra’s virtuosity and expressivity shine in this program that interweaves music from great Russian ballets like Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and Stravinsky’s Firebird with festive orchestral favorites, like Tchaikovsky’s spectacular 1812 Overture and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Festival Overture. This lively concert unites one of the world's greatest orchestras with one of the most acclaimed conductors of the last century, a testament to the versatility and mastery that make their reputation!
