    A happy reunion: After a long absence due to illness, Seiji Ozawa returned to conduct the Berliner Philharmoniker again in April 2016. The focus of the evening is on the First Viennese School. Following Mozart’s Serenade Gran Partita, performed by members of the orchestra without a conductor, there is then Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and the Choral Fantasy: a work that unmistakably looks ahead to his Ninth Symphony.

    Seiji Ozawa and Bernard Haitink are the Berliner Philharmoniker’s two longest-serving guest conductors. Ozawa celebrates his eightieth birthday on 1 September 2015, and the present live recording of his 2003 Waldbühne Concert is our way of congratulating him on this milestone in his life. With support from the Marcus Roberts Trio, Ozawa conducts three of Gershwin’s greatest orchestral hits: An American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue and the Concerto in F.
