* In his first appearance in the Berlin Philharmonic's New Years Eve's Concerts, Simon Rattle conducts one of the most brilliant and entertaining scores of Leonard Bernstein: the musical comedy "Wonderful Town"
* No conductor and no orchestra in the world attract more
Read more attention than Simon Rattle and his Berlin Philharmonic
* They are joined here by Broadway stars Kim Criswell and Audra McDonald and by world-famous baritone Thomas Hampson in the leading parts
* A great show full of dancing, choruses, fascinating light design and - above all - intoxicating music
* The exuberant atmosphere of this event culminates in an overwhelming encore with the musicians and audience dancing through the hall - you will never have seen the Philharmonie like this
* Brand new recording and state-of-the-art quality featuring 5.1 surround sound in Dolby Digital and DTS and widescreen 16:9 ratio
