Gala from Berlin 2016

Sir Simon Rattle conducts Kabalevsky, Walton, and Dvořák Gala from Berlin 2016


Immerse yourself in the superb sound of the Berliner Philharmoniker, who celebrate the 2016 edition of the Gala from Berlin with a legend of the conducting podium: the faultless Sir Simon Rattle. The evening begins with the bright Overture from Colas Breugnon by Kabalevsky before the storied ensemble moves on to works by William Walton (Rattle's own arrangement of the Suite from Facade!) and Dvořák, including three of the Czech master’s irresistible, spirited Slavonic Dances. This festive program is worthy of the grandeur of the prestigious event, a true fixture of the classical calendar that will undoubtedly enchant viewers and listeners.
