Mozart In The Woods

Where Berlin - - Entertainment -

Any con­cert with the name Baren­boim at­tached to it is des­tined to be a sen­sa­tional one. Even bet­ter if it takes place on a summer night, in a forested out­door arena, with 15,000 spec­ta­tors lis­ten­ing in rapt si­lence. On 24 Au­gust at 7pm, Daniel Baren­boim will be at the Wald­bühne (this page) to con­duct the West-Eastern Di­van Orches­tra as they per­form Mozart’s Piano Con­certo K 595 and Ravel’s Bolero.
