Program notes

In 1993, the Berlin Philharmonic paid tribute to Russia in a concert under the direction of Seiji Ozawa performed at their summer home of Berlin’s Waldbühne. The orchestra’s virtuosity and expressivity shine in this program that interweaves music from great Russian ballets like Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Stravinsky’s The Firebird with famous overtures like Tchaikovsky’s spectacular 1812 Overture as well as other less well-known symphonic works like the same composer’s “Elegy” from the String Serenade and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Festival Overture. Be sure to check out this exciting concert that attests to the versatility and mastery of an orchestra and a conductor whose renown is more than deserving!
