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.

Ritmo
There lay the originality and the weak point at a time, in view of the shortcomings and the affectation with which Ca±izares boarded his part. Could not be greater contrast with Rattle, dipped in a precious reading in its recreation of the thousand and one details instrumentals. Dominates the British master of the resources of the orchestra was again clear in the second of Rachmaninov, which offered a magnificent recreation, impeccable style and sound is always beautifully bound, round and velvety. Rattle took pains to control dynamic, with many regulators and a healthy flirting with the phrases most decadent of the work.
