PSO 2011 Euro Tour – Mahler Sym 5 in Berlin

I just finished listening to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra perform live in Berlin – an enjoyable performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. I gleaned a few photos from the live stream, click the photo for more images…

Symphonie Nr. 5 von Gustav Mahler – Live aus der Berliner Philharmonie

Under the leadership of music director Manfred Honeck, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra performs on 11 September 2011 at Musikfest Berlin. Live stream of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 by the orchestra is dedicated to the victims of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.

Manfred Honeck says in a statement:
“The 10th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 is of great global importance. For the people of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, they have a very special place: one of the four planes crashed in a field near Pittsburgh after passengers on board intervened. These brave men gave their lives for the lives of others. To you and all the victims of September 11, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra dedicates this global stream of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 from the Berlin Philharmonic. “

    Bravo! What a credit to our country this orchestra is. Thank you so much – the live stream was incredible! Looking forward to many more experiences with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

  2. […] At Berlin’s city hall, the PSO — with the leadership of the city of Berlin and the U.S. Embassy — marked the anniversary with a musical memorial. […]

    I saw the live webstream from Berlin yesterday; very fine work from the PSO, with the two encores as well (the Strausses Josef and Richard).

  4. What a fabulous concert and I did not have to leave Naples, Florida, but I might be encouraged to travel to Pittsburgh and hear a live concert! Check out the Berlin Philharmonic web site. A great way to get the message out about the orchestra and its activities.

  5. Click my name. American Public Media now has the performance up on youtube.

  7. Thanks Linda for your response! I wasn’t actually in Berlin myself. I listened to the concert via the internet :)
