Plot Sypnosis:

Spanish maestro Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos (1933-2014) concluded his acclaimed international conducting career of almost six decades with two memorable years as the venerated Principal Conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. Recorded live in concert at the new DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, this exclusive release combines Fruhbeck de Burgos powerful interpretation of the complete symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven with his spectacular renderings of Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz and Richard Strauss Eine Alpensinfonie as well as Joaquin Rodrigos popular concierto de Aranjuez, featuring the world-renowned Spanish guitarist Pepe Romero. Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos has led the most renowned American orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, to name just a few. In 2010, Fruhbeck de Burgos was named Conductor of the Year by the prestigious magazine Musical America. More than 100 recordings testify to his reputation as one of the most renowned orchestra conductors in recent times. Some of his albums are considered to be reference recordings: Mendelssohns oratorios Elijah and St. Paul, Mozarts Requiem, Orffs Carmina Burana, Bizets Carmen and the complete works of Manuel de Falla.
