Every year, the Berliner Philharmoniker celebrates its own creation in 1882 with the Europa Konzert. This year, the orchestra invites one of the most popular mezzo-soprano of our days, Magdalena Kožená. Held in the Spanish Hall at the Prague Castle, the concert will start with a work from the last century, the Fantasy on a theme by Thomas Tallis by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Composed after the Psalms, the Ten Biblical Songs by Dvorák will continue the show. A true celebration of the countryside, the Sixth Symphony by Beethoven, also called “Pastoral”, will conclude the concert.
