The 12 Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic on “Berlin Festival”

September 30, 2013

Tonight at 7:00 on WILL it’s the Evening Concert: “Berlin Festival” from the Deutsche Welle Festival Concerts.  Le Musiche Quartet plays Dvorak’s “String Quartet No. 14 in F major” written in 1893 while he was in America, thus its subtitle, the “American”.  Also on the program, the Twelve Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic play tangos by Astor Piazzola.
