Simon Rattle conducts Beethoven and Mendelssohn at the Waldbühne

“Be embraced, you millions!” says Ludwig van Beethoven rapturously to the whole of mankind in his Ninth Symphony. This global message is particularly impressively conveyed in this 2013 concert from the Berlin Waldbühne – in front of an audience of over 20,000 people. Simon Rattle conducted this memorable evening, and the soloist in Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is Christian Tetzlaff.
