A “St Petersburg Night” with Daniel Barenboim and Zubin Mehta at the Waldbühne

The Berliner Philharmoniker’s 1997 Waldbühne concert featured two musicians who have an unusually long friendship both with each other and with the orchestra: Daniel Barenboim and Zubin Mehta. In glorious weather and against an atmospheric backdrop, they presented an evening of Russian music ranging from Glinka to Rimsky-Korsakov with the theme of a “Saint Petersburg Night”. Barenboim, a pianist rarely seen in the Russian repertoire, shone as the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s famous First Piano Concerto.
