July

Berliner Philharmoniker

01.07.17 WALDBÜHNE

“When I hear Wagner’s music, I always think of the sunrise from Nietzsche’s Zarathustra – the crescendo of colours, the epic naturalism, the illumination of a huge spirit. It sweeps you away, like great cinema,” avows Gustavo Dudamel, conductor of the concert at the Waldbühne. This is not the first time he will guest conduct at this event. Already in 2008, the Venezuelan conducted the Berlin Philharmonic’s traditional conclusion to the season, debuting with the orchestra at the same time. The concert of Spanish and Latin American music was entitled Los ritmos de la noche, and delighted not only the audience but also the press. The event may well go down – the critic from the Tagespiegel wrote – as the coolest conducting debut in the history of the Philharmoniker.
