Open Air: A Night With The Berliner Philharmoniker
As the cameras reveal the scale of this open-air event, held at Berlin's WaldbÃ¼hne in 2002, it is not only the music that is transmitted but the extraordinary atmosphere. This is a full programme of musical bon-bons - pieces regularly given as encores: it's as if the joyous moment following a successful performance has blossomed into a whole evening. Vadim Repin is clearly happy to indulge, performing here with all the appropriate showmanship and artistry alongside the first-class Berliner Philharmoniker and Mariss Jansons. There is a palpable satisfaction from all involved, musicians and crowd alike.
