Europa Concert 2011

Clemency Burton-Hill presents this year's Europa Concert by the Berlin Philharmonic under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle from the grand surroundings of the Teatro Real in Madrid.

This world-revered orchestra performs a programme with a distinctive Spanish flavour, including Chabrier's Espana and the Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo, featuring the celebrated flamenco guitarist Juan Manuel Canizares. The programme concludes with one of the great Russian Romantic masterpieces - Rachmaninov's second symphony.

Burton-Hill also speaks with Sir Simon Rattle regarding the foundation of the Europa Concert together with the concert repertoire.
