Waldbühne 2017 - "Legends of the Rhine"

The third time is the charm.

If we are to believe this well-known proverb, the Berliner Philharmoniker’s traditional season end concert at Berlin’s Waldbühne is practically destined to be a sweeping concert. After all, it will be the third time Gustavo Dudamel is going to guest conduct this event. Back in 2008, the Venezuelan conducted the Berliner Philharmoniker’s traditional open air concert, debuting with the orchestra at the same time. In 2014, he returned for “A Midsummer Night” honoring Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, and 2017 will see him perform an all-German program.

For his third concert at Waldbühne, Gustavo Dudamel is favoring exclusively German romantic Music; works by two composers who are almost exactly the same age and are both from Saxony, but in personality and musical conception could not be more contrary: Robert Schumann and Richard Wagner. “The scores are so well written,” Dudamel raves, “so brilliantly conceived, the orchestration is amazing, the harmonies so full of expression. Every note means something – sometimes many things at once.”

Waldbühne 2017 is broadcasted live on July 1 at 8:15pm
