A new benchmark in climbing was set when Reinhold Messner reached the summit of Mount Everest with Peter Habeler – for the very first time without the use of supplementary oxygen. The Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and its chief conductor Robin Ticciati also break new ground in this production recorded at Berlin's Tempodrom, where they present Richard Strauss's An Alpine Symphony as a musical mountain tour with Messner himself as guide. The alpine philosophy of the legendary climber and explorer is interwoven with the music create a cinematic dialogue, with the orchestra arranged in 360 degrees around Ticciati, opening new perspectives on the music and on man's existential encounter with nature.
