For their 2016 show, the orchestra is joined by Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili and Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who seem to truly enjoy performing together.
Why else would they re-unite for the 2016 Concert at Waldbühne so shortly after finishing a joint tour? After all, it has only been a couple of months since they performed in Dresden, Berlin, Dortmund and Vienna. The press published raving reviews, with Austrian newspaper Der Standard taking a bow and stating that everything about their interpretation of Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony seemed to be just perfect, and that Batiashvili even managed to top of the orchestra's zest with the Shostakovich Violin Concerto, all the while showcasing her complete musical mastery.
It does, hence, not come as a surprise that the Berliner Philharmoniker invited those two to join them for their highly popular Concert from the Waldbühne in June 2016.
Under the baton of Yannik Nézet-Séguin and with Lisa Batiashvili, the Berliner Philharmoniker present an all Czech program, with Smetana’s famous Vltava as the opening piece. It is followed by beloved Dvorák works – among them the Symphony No. 6 as the concert’s center piece.
