CBSO/Andris Nelsons playing Shostakovich 7th Symphony. For me this piece is one of the milestones in music history and I love the work of Andris Nelsons. So that would be another highlight to experience something unforgettable.

Prom 71, Tuesday 4 September
St. Louis Symphony/Tetzlaff/Robertson I absolutly can't hear enough interpretations of Beethoven's Violin Concerto and hearing it at Royal Albert Hall with Christian Tetzlaff would be another concert not to miss.
