The concerts in this DVD box feature not only the Berliner Philharmoniker but also many of the orchestra’s famous friends. For example, in addition to chief conductors Claudio Abbado and Simon Rattle, Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Chailly, James Levine, Zubin Mehta, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Seiji Ozawa among others can also be seen conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker – even Plácido Domingo made a highly acclaimed guest appearance as conductor in 2001. The soloists of these concerts are also in the musical premiere league, such as the violinists Lisa Batiashvili, Janine Jansen and Sarah Chang, and the opera stars Renée Fleming, Angela Gheorghiu and Bryn Terfel

And then on top of all this, there is the wonderful music itself. Each concert follows an engaging concept, such as “Russian Rhythms”, a “Gershwin Night” or a compilation of the most beautiful encores. You can hear popular hits ranging from Ravel’s Bolero and Smetana’s The Moldau to music from the soundtrack to Star Wars. Then there are also wonderful discoveries which surprise you that you have never heard them before. However, as full of surprises as these concerts are, the conclusion is predictable and traditional: Paul Lincke’s Berliner Luft, the city’s unofficial anthem that brings every Waldbühne concert to an impressively rousing end.
