With Krakow's glorious St. Mary's Church as the setting, the world-acclaimed Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra performs a concert to both commemorate the orchestra's 1882 founding and reaffirm the cultural life of a reborn European community. This DVD is being re-released this month with new packaging.

Featuring Bernard Haitink as guest conductor, the concert's repertoire features soprano Christine Schäfer performing two pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the brilliant "Allelujah" from the motet Exsultate, jubilate followed by the richly introspective "Et incarnatus est" from the great C minor Mass.

Also featured is renowned pianist Emanuel Ax, who performs the Second Concerto by Poland's most beloved native composer, Frédéric Chopin. The concert concludes with the Berlin Philharmonic's performance of Robert Schumann's radiant Spring Symphony.
