Benefit concert for the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster (10 min.)

One choir, two orchestras, two readers and one conductor: a wealth of artists came together in the Philharmonie at the end of April 2011 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the nuclear reactor disaster in Chernobyl which was again in the headlines following events in the Fukushima reactor in Japan. But it was not only about keeping the memory of these terrible events alive; it was to provide concrete help, with the proceeds of the concert and the Internet webcast going to organisations that particularly provide support for young people in Chernobyl. In our video, the artists involved talk about their concerns associated with this concert.
