After the Bonn tour the ONF took part to the Fête de l’Humanité at the Parc Courneuve in Paris. Maestro Masur was supposed to conduct this concert, but instead it was conducted by the new music director Daniele Gatti. There were thousands of people in attendance on a beautiful sunny Sunday!


The program was just the Seventh symphony of Beethoven, and Gatti was really on. Behind him you can see the shade which was in front of the stage to protect the musicians from the burning sun.
