Claudio Abbado conducts famous final movements at the 1999 New Year’s Eve Concert

Even serious music lovers know it: the anticipation of the finale of a symphonic work which brings an audience to its feet. On New Year’s Eve 1999, the Berliner Philharmoniker audience was granted the rare opportunity of enjoying an entire evening of just those spectacular closing movements – from Beethoven, Dvořák, Mahler and many more. Plus, a selection of cheerful encores from the repertoire of Berlin operetta from the 1920s.
