Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra/Mehta

Zubin Mehta conducting the Berlin Philharmonic from a chair

See Zubin Mehta conduct one of the world’s finest orchestras in three classics from Wagner, Stravinsky and Dvořák.

With its lustrous, burnished sound, the BRSO stands at the very summit of the great German symphonic tradition: they’re one of those ensembles that makes everything they touch sound more beautiful.

Few living conductors are better equipped to draw the best from this superb ensemble than Mehta – and from Wagner’s majestic overture to Dvořák’s darkest symphony, this is exactly the sort of music in which the BRSO reigns supreme.

This performance will end at approximately 9.30pm, including a 20 minute interval.
