Concert of 8 February 1932

There is not much to say about this concert. 1932 was the 50th anniversary of the Berlin Philharmonic. Festivities and, above all, a major tour in the spring celebrated the event. But right from the Winter tour — North Germany, the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands — the Orchestra was determined to demonstrate its worth. In fact, its very survival was at stake, as its very existence was under threat in these times of crisis.

From this concert remain a series of snapshots, taken by the talented Erich Salomon.
