Live on TV channels rbb Fernsehen and 3sat, in the Digital Concert Hall, and on radio station
The Berliner Philharmoniker traditionally conclude their season with a live concert at the Waldbühne
together with thousands of spectators. Unfortunately, this year’s concert has had to be cancelled due to
the corona crisis. Instead of the live concert, the broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg will present
a review of the history of the Waldbühne concerts since 1984 on 20 June at 20:15 (Berlin time). Rbb
culture reporter Petra Gute will be joined by members of the Berliner Philharmoniker to view excerpts
from the past decades. Sarah Willis, Daishin Kashimoto and Philipp Bohnen will discuss the excerpts,
revealing previously unknown stories about the performances.
The broadcast can be seen live on 3sat and in the Digital Concert Hall. The radio station rbbKultur is also
changing its programme, and will also broadcast a “best of” from the history of the Waldbühne concerts,
presented by Andreas Knaesche.
The broadcast in the Digital Concert Hall is free of charge. The programme will be repeated on Sunday,
21 June at 1 p.m. Berlin time and will then be available in the Digital Concert Hall archive until the start
of the new season.
Olaf Maninger and Stanley Dodds, media chairmen of the orchestra: “It is a great tradition that our end-of-season concert from the Waldbühne is broadcast every year by our partners at rbb. This year, we will
unfortunately have to do without the live experience with an audience, which is why we find the idea of
putting together a “best of” the Waldbühne concerts all the more wonderful, and we are delighted to be
able to present the programme free of charge in the Digital Concert Hall next Saturday!”
