Berliner Philharmoniker
Sir Simon Rattle

A joyful celebration welcoming the New Year with one of the best orchestras in the world. The Gala from Berlin 2004 presents the outstanding Berliner Philharmoniker, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle with Carl Orffs well known "Carmina Burana" as well as Beethoven's "Leonore Overture No. 3". Carmina Burana is intensely dramatic and one of the twentieth century's most widely performed works for chorus and orchestra. Simon Rattle is a musical force of nature and the interaction between his unique, varied musical gifts and the great performing traditions of the Berliner Philharmoniker is one of the most exciting features of our present cultural life. "Everything which I've written so far and which you've unfortunately published you can now pulp. My collected works begin with Carmina Burana." Carl Orff
