Plácido Domingo Conducts A Spanish Night - Waldbühne Berlin

Sarah Chang violin | Ana María Martínez soprano
Berliner Philharmoniker
Plácido Domingo

This EuroArts release forms part of the celebrations for the 125th anniversary of the Berlin Philharmonic. It captures an evening of Spanish music and Spanish themes recorded live in 2001.
World-famous tenor Plácido Domingo conducts the Berlin Philharmonic in works, which have always been particularly close to his heart. The concert features fabulous violinist Sarah Chang performing virtuosic show-pieces such as Sarasate's “Carmen Fantasy” and “Gypsy Airs”. The programme also included a collection of delightful “zarzuela” arias, sung by Ana Maria Martinez, winner of the Plácido Domingo Vocal Competition in Barcelona.
The DVD captures the unique atmosphere of the Berlin Philharmonic’s annual summer concert at the Waldbühne, Berlin. This very successful open-air concert has become a regular event in Berlin’s social calendar.
The Bonus Film shows Plácido Domingo in conversation with Sarah Chang and Behind-the-Scenes pictures from the concert.
