To mark the state visit to Germany of the Netherlands’ Queen Beatrix, Amsterdam’s great orchestra will be giving a concert at the Philharmonie in Berlin on Wednesday, April 13. Mariss Jansons will conduct the Royal Concergebouw in the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto (with soloist Janine Jansen) and Brahms’s Fourth Symphony. The programme will open with the national anthems of both the Netherlands and Germany.

The concert will be available to watch live – without charge – in the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Digital Concert Hall on Wednesday at 8pm (Berlin), 7pm (London), 2pm (New York) and 3am (the following day, in Japan). Full details at the Digital Concert Hall website.

Queen Beatrix will be accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima of the Netherlands, and also by the German President Christian Wulff and his wife Bettina. This will be the second state visit to Germany by Queen Beatrix, and the first since reunification.

Subscribers to the Digital Concert Hall will also be able to compare Jansons’s Brahms Fourth with the archived performance given two weeks ago by the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sir Simon Rattle as part of the concert given jointly with the Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim in aid of UNICEF’s emergency fund in Japan.
