A true celebration, ushering in the New Year with one of the finest orchestras and greatest conductors in the world. The 2007 Gala from Berlin features the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle in Alexander Borodin’s Second Symphony, a richly lyrical work of immense poetic grandeur and fairytale magic, in a programme that also includes one of the greatest classical hits ever: Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
Borodin: Polovtsian Dances, Opera "Prince Igor", Symphony No. 2 in B minor; Mussorgsky: Introduction to the Opera "Khovantchina", Pictures at an Exhibition; Shostakovich: Dance from "The Golden Age", Ballet Suite, Op. 22
