Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The Royal Philharmonic deftly maneuvers around a large songbook, handling with extreme ease both (quasi-) modern pop and classical. They have fun with the pop numbers, adapting their instrumentation to work in an orchestral context.

Anne Sophie Mutter
Runtime: 1 hr 9 minIn May 2015 Anne-Sophie Mutter put her noble, impressively named “Lord Dunn-Raven” Stradivarius through more than its usual paces. For a change, rather than standing on stage in one of the world’s renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin. The name of the club was Neue Heimat, or “new home”, and on two evenings in early summer it was jam-packed with hip young people.
