Notes & Reviews:

In 2011 the Berliner Philharmoniker and musical director Sir Simon Rattle welcomed the New year with a gala concert centered on the concept of "Dances & Dreams." Spine-tingling and inspiring performances of music by Dvorak, R. Struass, Stravinsky, and Brahms are complemented by the formidable talent of Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin. Kissin's musicality, the depth and poetry of his interpretations, and extraordinary virtuosity have placed him at the forefront of today's pianists.

Gramophone
Then there's Grieg. The playing of the Berliner's first oboe in the Symphonic Dance is a thing of delicious beauty.
