    “Carmen” with Simon Rattle, Magdalena Kožená and Jonas Kaufmann

    Probably no other opera contains so many “hits” as Carmen. Yet despite its popularity, there is always something new to be discovered in the work – which is also the case in this 2012 performance from the Philharmonie. Here, Simon Rattle presents Carmen not as an overblown grand opera, but brings out the many nuances of the score, its lightness and refinement. The main roles are sung by Magdalena Kožená and Jonas Kaufmann.

    Concert with Claudio Abbado to mark the 100th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s death

    With this concert from 18 May 2011, the Berliner Philharmoniker commemorated the 100th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s death. Claudio Abbado, with whom the orchestra gave many moving Mahler performances, conducted two works to mark the event which seem like elegiac meditations on the finiteness of all life: Das Lied von der Erde with Anne Sofie von Otter and Jonas Kaufmann as the soloists – and the Adagio from the Tenth Symphony.
