The founding of the Berliner Philharmoniker on the first of May in 1882, is annually celebrated with a concert in a European city of cultural significance. For this newly released EUROPAKONZERT Blu-ray Disc all recordings were lovingly restored and converted to High Definition video. It was with this very recording that the Berliner Philharmoniker have founded the tradition of the EUROPAKONZERT, celebrated here wonderfully with an all-Mozart program under the baton of Claudio Abbado.
