In 2013, the Berliner Philharmoniker return to the city where the tradition of the annual Europakonzert, founded by Claudio Abbado in 1991, first began: Prague. The concert programme is always tailored to the venues, whose architecture provides an impressive backdrop. This year, the orchestra and audience take their seats in the magnificent Spanish Hall in the Prague Castle.
