Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra Homage to “Mahler”

The BerlinMusic scene regardless whether Classic,Modern,Techno,Dance or Jazz Berlin is pretty eclectic when it comes to it’s cultural music scene and there is so much to do in this eclectic city.I decided to go to the (Berlin Philharmonic Ochestra)Berliner-Philharmoniker the evening was dedicated to the Bohemian born Composer Gustav-Mahler .The location was at the Philharmonic Center built by the Architect Hans Sharoun built from 1960-1963, This structure is one of the most interesting architectural jewels in Berlin and I have been told by many devout classical music lovers that the Berliner-Philharmoniker hall has one of the best acoustics in the world so one is always in for a delightful musical treat.This very light and airy structure has fascinated me for some time and has always been an enjoyment for both the eye and ear. The complex with two concert halls offers one the opportunity on many evenings to be introduced to some of the best classical music interpreters that the music world has to offer .

With classical music greats such as Sir Simon Rattle,Daniel Barenboim,Herbert von Karajan
Gwyneth Jones,Placido Domingo, and Jessy Norman to name just a few have awed audiences in this musical venue for many years these halls have an unbelievable DNA.
On this evening the 100th Anniversary Concert to honor Gustav Mahler the evening was conducted by the Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and accompanied by the Tenor Jonas Kaufmann, the Soprano Anne Sofie von Otter and the world renowned Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra I was definitely in for a true treat.
Which after the conclusion of the evening the audience stood up in applause to the Maestro and the Artists for a truly romantic musical evening.Which included the Symphony Nr 10,and The song from the Earth.
The evening was truly delightful and an evening that I will not forget in the near future!!!! I recommend to many when one is in Berlin to visit and experience this part of Berlin culturally.
Granted the artists vary in style and music genre but when it comes to quality at this level Berlin cannot be beaten.

This is truly one of the must to Do’s when in Berlin for a Classical music enthusiast as well as for the open minded .The evening granted was not inexpensive however there are seats that are inexpensive and one can go shortly before a performance starts and possibly have the opportunity to purchase tickets at a reasonable price.Friends for a fab evening go to the (Berlin Philharmonic) Berliner-Philharmoniker!!!!and be inspired.P.S. Next week on the 30th of May is a Benefit concert for Japan this may be the time when in Berlin to make a visit for a possible musical experience of a lifetime and to support a good cause.!!!!

Love Sean
