PSO 2011 Euro Tour - Mahler Sym 5 in Berlin

I just finished listening to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra perform live in Berlin - an enjoyable performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 5.

Symphonie Nr. 5 von Gustav Mahler - Live aus der Berliner Philharmonie

Under the leadership of music director Manfred Honeck, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra performs on 11 September 2011 at Musikfest Berlin. Live stream of Mahler's Symphony No. 5 by the orchestra is dedicated to the victims of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.

Manfred Honeck says in a statement:
"The 10th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 is of great global importance. For the people of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, they have a very special place: one of the four planes crashed in a field near Pittsburgh after passengers on board intervened. These brave men gave their lives for the lives of others. To you and all the victims of September 11, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra dedicates this global stream of Mahler's Symphony No. 5 from the Berlin Philharmonic. "
