European concert in Athens with Simon Rattle and Leonidas Kavakos
In 2015, in the year of the great European and Greek crisis, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sir Simon Rattle held their European concert in Athens as a sign of their commitment to solidarity on the old continent. Leonidas Kavakos dazzled as the soloist in Sibelius’ Violin Concerto.
On a big screen in the garden of the Megaron concert hall the European concert was broadcasted outdoors. After the concert Sir Simon and orchestra musicians surprised the public with a little speech about music as a unifying language.
You can follow us live via TV, Internet or Radio to Athens. The concert starts at 11.00 (Berlin time) and will be broadcastet via Kulturradio (also Live-Stream on the internet) and Das Erste (first German public television).
