Claudio Abbado conducts Mozart at the 1991 Europakonzert from Prague

This was the concert with which the Berliner Philharmoniker founded the tradition of the Europakonzert. The first of these performances took the orchestra and its chief conductor to Prague in 1991, where an all-Mozart programme marked the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth. In addition to Symphonies Nos. 29 and 35, the concert included virtuoso arias with the soprano Cheryl Studer who at that time was at the peak of her career.
