Waldbühne concert and tour with Gustavo Dudamel

Works by Tchaikovsky and Brahms were at the centre of the 2014 Waldbühne concert, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. The Berliner Philharmoniker also embarked on a tour with the Venezuelan conductor at the end of the season that included the open-air event.
