Berlin Philharmonic in Warsaw

The famous Berlin Philharmonic orchestra is coming to Warsaw to give a single concert at the National Philharmonic Sept. 26 at 8 p.m.

The orchestra, founded 127 years ago, will play Beethoven's Symphony No. 2 in D Major op. 36 and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4 in C Minor op. 43. The concert will be conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, while the first violinist will be Poland's Daniel Stabrawa, the long-time Berlin Philharmonic concertmaster.

The Berlin Philharmonic is one of the best and most well-known orchestras in the world. Since its formation in 1882, it has earned a reputation with perfectionist performances working with the best conductors in the world.

Britain's Sir Thomas Rattle became the artistic director of the orchestra in 2002. Musicians who play in the Berlin Philharmonic come from 18 countries.

Britain's Gramophone magazine has voted the Berlin Philharmonic one of the five best orchestras in the world, alongside the Vienna Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

The visit of the Berlin Philharmonic to Poland follows years of efforts by Deutsche Bank, the principal sponsor of the orchestra. The bank eventually succeeded in persuading the musicians to visit Warsaw on their 2009 tour.
