Claudio Abbado conducts Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at the 2000 Europakonzert from Berlin

Many performances of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony are intended to give musical expression to a festive event. One such occasion was the 2000 Europakonzert from Berlin, conducted by Claudio Abbado – the tenth event of its kind. A stark contrast to Beethoven’s final symphony is provided by his Piano Concert in B-flat major – Beethoven’s first major orchestral work – with Mikhail Pletnev as the soloist.
