Invitation to Dance – Barenboim conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker

Gala from Berlin

Performance date: 31/12/2001
97 Min

Ballets, waltzes and gavottes: the 2001 Gala from Berlin is led by Daniel Barenboim, from both the podium and the piano. This lively New Year's Eve programme travels through 300 years of music and numerous countries, including Germany, the Czech Republic, Russia, Finland and even Barenboim's homeland, Argentina. The lively whirl of catchy and melodic works span a large range of emotions, taking the audience from dream-like soundscapes and royal ballrooms to decadent dance floors and Latin American fiestas. Welcoming in the new year, the three encores to finish make it clear that the audience wholeheartedly accepts the Berliner Philharmoniker's invitation to dance.
