An extraordinary programme for an extraordinary night: The Berliner Philharmoniker celebrates the final day of the 20th Century with Grand Finales in the first part and heralds the leap into the 21st Century with an explosion of sparkling music pieces in the 2nd half of the programme. For the Grand Finales, maestro Abbado conducts masterpieces such as Beethoven's Finale of the 7th symphony, excerpts from Stravinsky's "Feuervogel" and the final movement of Mahler's 5th Symphony. In the famous Finale of Arnold Schönberg's "Gurre Lieder," the internationally renowned actor Klaus Maria Brandauer plays a leading role. A true celebration to welcome in the new millenium with one of the best orchestras in the world! With Berliner Philharmoniker Claudio Abbado, conductor Rundfunkchor Berlin Rias Kammerchor.
