Notes & Reviews:

For over 20 years, the Berliner Philharmoniker have celebrated their foundation on May 1st with the annual 'Europa Konzert' - this year’s event takes place at the magnificent Teatro Real in Madrid. The renowned orchestra, under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle, performs Joaquín Rodrigo's beloved Concierto de Aranjuez, Emmanuel Chabrier's exuberant España, and Sergey Rachmaninov's dramatic Second Symphony. It is joined for the Concierto by the famous flamenco guitarist Cañizares, whose virtuosity and sensitivity are given full opportunity to shine in this multi-faceted and subtle work.

Rodrigo's famous concerto receives a spectacular highly individual interpretation by Ca±izares. Sir Simon's accompaniment could not be bettered, and the oboe solo in the second movement surely has never sounded as luxurious... Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 also is given a superlative performance with the BPO in top form... Excellent video and audio. Highly recommended.

The Rachmaninoff Second Symphony, one of the most romantic symphonies ever penned would have been enough to make this strongly recommended BD. The third movement principal theme is about the most gorgeous melody that I have ever heard. It is lovingly played by the Berliners and, like Godiva chocolate, you just can't get enough of it ... this is still a disc well worth going for.
