Notes & Reviews:

An extraordinary program for an extraordinary night: The Berliner Philharmoniker celebrates the final day of the 20th Century with Grand Finales in the first part and heralds the leap into the 21st Century with an explosion of sparkling music pieces in the second half of the program. For the Grand Finales, Maestro Claudio Abbado conducts masterpieces including Beethoven's 'finale' of the 7th symphony, excerpts from Stravinsky's 'Feuervogel' and the final movement of Mahler's 5th Symphony. In the famous Finale of Arnold Schonberg's 'Gurrelieder', the internationally renowned actor Klaus Maria Brandauer plays a leading role.
