Berliner Philharmoniker: New Year’s Eve Concert (12A)

The Hawth, Hawth Avenue, Crawley

Monday December 31, 4pm

Tickets £16/over 60s and students £14

The conductor of this New Year’s Eve concert is Daniel Barenboim, one of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s oldest friends. He also takes on the role of soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 26 – a work of sparkling beauty and nuanced expression. There are also four famous works by Maurice Ravel, which create an impressive synthesis of elegance and originality. The final highlight is the Boléro, perhaps the most stunning crescendo in music history.
