The Berlin Philharmonic's summer concert at the magnificent outdoor venue of Waldbühne, in the woods outside Berlin, is a major annual event among Germany's music lovers. The 1996 concert seen here features two outstanding soloists: Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu, and Wales's brilliant baritone Bryn Terfel.

They sing a selection of opera favourites, mainly taken from the Verdi blockbusters, and the Berliners under Claudio Abbado add a few famous overtures to the mix.
A recital to revel in, finishing with the traditional encore: Paul Lincke's Berliner Luft.
