EUROPAKONZERT 2014 FROM BERLIN

Live recording from the Philharmonie, Berlin

BERLINER PHILHARMONIKER
DANIEL BARENBOIM conductor

Otto Nicolai Overture to "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor"
(The Merry Wives of Windsor)
Edward Elgar Falstaff in C minor, Op. 68
Piotr Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64

Every year since 1991 the Berliner Philharmoniker have given a concert on May 1st in a different European city to commemorate the anniversary of the orchestra’s founding in 1882 and to celebrate the common heritage of the Old World. In 2014 the EUROPKONZERT took place again in Berlin. Opened in 1963 the Berliner Philharmonie is after 50 years still the musical heart of the city and a beloved venue for the international classical music scene. The concert is conducted by a man who has been associated with the Berliner Philharmoniker since 1964: Daniel Barenboim - which marks another "50 years jubilee" in 2014.

The programme of this year's EUROPAKONZERT has an international flavour: Otto Nicolai’s Singspiel “The Merry Wives of Windsor”, which received its premiere in Berlin in 1849, is based on William Shakespeare’s comedy of the same name, and its lively overture has long since secured a place on the concert stage. Also inspired by a Shakespearean comedy hero is Edward Elgar’s symphonic study Falstaff. At the end we turn to the Fifth Symphony of Piotr Tchaikovsky which is characterized by its sombre main theme.
