About

Every year, the Berliner Philharmonikerís founding day (1 May 1882) is celebrated with a concert in a European city of cultural significance. In 1996, the Europakonzert took place in the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg. It was in this legendary theatre that many of the great Russian operas received their premieres and where the Berliner Philharmonisches Orchester performed for the first time - on the occasion of Tsar Nicholasís II coronation - exactly 100 years ago. Under the baton of Claudio Abbado, the Berliner  Philharmoniker celebrated their anniversary with Russian favourites plus two of Beethovenís Violin Romances and his Seventh Symphony.
