That sentence could end in a lot of ways, but today I’ve chose to close it with, “…I had extra money to spend on the Berlin Philharmonic’s Digital Concert Hall.” This website has some of (In my opinion) the best recordings of staple works. Many big name conductors are included, including Rattle, Gergiev, Abbado, Dudamel, Mayer, Gruber, and others.
And, most importantly, the Berlin Phil delivers as one of the leading orchestras in the world. Oh, how I wish I could buy more of these virtual tickets!!
