Europakonzert 2017 from Paphos
The Europakonzert 2017 took the Berliner Philharmoniker to one of the most mythical places in its history: Paphos, birthplace of Aphrodite. Soloist was Andreas Ottensamer with his interpretation of von Weber‘s highly elaborate Clarinet Concerto. The first part of the concert will conclude with Dvořák‘s 8th Symphony, an unusually optimistic and light-hearted composition and it will end with Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5. The conductor was Mariss Jansons, a close friend of the orchestra for several decades.
