Daniel Barenboim: Bruckner / Mozart.

Daniel Barenboim has with the work of Anton Bruckner complicity particular, to the point that the Israeli-Argentine leader has become over the years one of his best servants.

When the highly experienced Staatskapelle Berlin, unites power and precision with Daniel Barenboim, the conductor/pianist will deliver his interpretation of Anton Bruckners  Symphonies No. 7 and No. 9. The first parts of the concert will be dedicated to another of his favorite composers, Mozart, which he conduct from the piano chair.

We enjoyed these programmes during the Enescu Festival in Bucarest last summer. To have Daniel Barenboim both conducting these demanding Bruckner Sympnonies,  and in the first part every day, himself to be soloist and also conducting from the piano two of Mozarts Piano Concertos,  no  24 and 22. It is an extraordinary event, and also to meet this soloist/conductor full of generosity to his audience and to the orchestra. A extraordinary star visit!!!
