Tune in today, when webcasts Gustavo Dudamel leading Berlin Philharmonic

Tune in today, when streams a live webcast of the Berlin Philharmonic’s summer concert at the outdoor amphitheater Waldbühne. Led by Gustavo Dudamel, who serves as Music Director of both the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, the program presents Brahms’s First Symphony with Tchaikovsky’s symphonic fantasy The Tempest and fantasy-overture Romeo and Juliet, both of which – in keeping with the concert’s “Midsummer Night” theme – were inspired by the plays of Shakespeare. The concert will be broadcast live at, online and on its mobile applications, and will be available for free streaming on demand for 90 days.

Dudamel graciously agreed to conduct Waldbühne 2014 in place of Sir Simon Rattle, Music Director of the Berlin Philharmonic, after Rattle withdrew in order to welcome the latest addition to his family, baby Anežka, who was born earlier this week.
