We are in an historical place: the monastery El Escorial, north-west of Madrid, which King Philip II had built between. 1563 and 1584 in honour of St. Lawrence, on whose saint day the battle of San Quintin had been won. This European Concert, which annually celebrates the founding of the Berlin Philharmonic on 1st May 1882, was performed in this venue on the World Heritage List of the UNESCO. After the premiere in Prague in 1991, it was the second concert of its kind. The orchestra was conducted by Daniel Barenboim. The soloist on this evening was the star tenor Placido Domingo.
