The Great Escape - Music & More

Since many years the Berliner Philharmoniker are famous for their acclaimed concerts in Japan. In this live recording from the year 2000, they perform under the baton of Mariss Jansons. Tokyo's Suntory Hall is alive to a program of particular musical energy - sometimes overt and joyous, sometimes suppressed and intense. Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1, featuring top soloist Hilary Hahn, is rendered with poise, elegance and demoniac vigour. This piece is framed by two sprightly works: Weber's charming, zesty Overture to Oberon and Dvor√°k's Eighth Symphony, executed with Bohemian-esque lyricism and verve. Hilary Hahn is a two-time Grammy Award-winning soloist. She is celebrated for her probing interpretations, technical assurance and compelling stage presence. Her extensive international performances and recording activities have made Hahn one of the most important artists of our years.
