......The venue is huge. More that 20.000 people. And that night it was full. Berliner Philharmoniker conducted by Simon Rattle managed to gather such a crowd.
Encore 2: Paul Lincke “Die Berliner Luft”
......Concluzia. Nu imi pare rau ca am fost. Imi doream de mult sa ascult combinatia Berliner/Rattle pe viu. Cei mai buni dintre cei mai buni. Nu ocoliti simfonicul. Poate produce surprize foarte placute.
Waldbuhne - 20.000 people seated + standing + seated on the stairs. Before the concert
A very good looing double bass player :)
8pm. The orchestra is on the stage. First thing they did when they came was to create the WAVE. Small video here. Not very clear, but everybody was moving around me.
Couldn't help myself :)
Excerpt from The Nutcracker
Great Rachmaninov 3~
Just to have an idea of how it sounds...
End of part one. The piano is taken back to the left side of the stage
The clouds. Right on time... heavy rain to follow
And it started...
The second part. Le Sacre du Printemps
Here he told us that he's sorry they won't play Singing in the Rain.
During the second encore. People brought crackers from home
Sir Rattle went to the percussion section. No need for the conductor :)
A small video I took. To capture somehow the joy of the people.
And it was over. Sooooooooooooorrrrrryyyyyyyy
...... Another great evening. After Tosca, one night before at the Deutsche Oper and the visit to the Parliament and Charlotenburg, this concert really made my trip worth.
