  1. News, Concerts and Events
    This was in the news tonight in Spain, and I've seen press reports on the net but only in French, Italian and Spanish. I'll try to sum up this piece: What's your take? There have been many shows about music like this one, I guess. I never saw one like this. However, when I was a kid in the...
  2. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Would you like to see in the market any of the Wagner Rings conducted by Daniel Barenboim? Like a CD version of the Scala ring? A BBC or Universal release of the 2013 Proms concert? Still nostalgic of the Bayreuth 91/92? I'd like to be more precise. There is still no release of the Proms 2013...
  3. Orchestral Music
    Last Saturday, when I was editing my video coursework for an University module, I needed to find a good Bewegt from Bruckner's Symphony No.4. Because my favourite, Celibidache EMI, was too slow, I tried using one of the best I remembered, Klemperer PO. But this recording was well conducted and...
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    People seem to talk of Reiner's and Solti's golden era with Chicago. Some may even talk about Abbado's various recordings with CSO. What I don't hear about is Barenboim's long fifteen year tenure at CSO or the various recordings they produced. Why is this? Is Barenboim considered a bad conductor...

    I came across a clip on YouTube and it looks very fascinating. My favourite piece of Chamber music with 5 of the greats playing :Daniel Barenboim (piano), Itzhak Perlman (violin), Pinchas Zukerman (viola), Jacqueline du Pré (cello) and Zubin Mehta (double bass) It is expensive (over 30 Euro)...
  6. Keyboard Instruments
    Daniel Barenboim has designed his own piano. "Barenboim launched the instrument at London's Royal Festival Hall, in advance of his Schubert recital series. He intends to perform the entire series on the new piano." Interesting article. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-32885683
  7. Classical Music Discussion
    The link below is an interview that Daniel Barenboim gave on Elgar. Barenboim says that he gets mad at people calling Elgar "that English composer". This could be due to his music being a key part of the Last Night of the Proms. However I agree that his works should be put into the wider rep...

    I want to purchase the complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas. Which recording do you suggest, Barenboim or Schnabel?
  9. Orchestral Music
    I have never listened to the Enigma Variations till this morning with an intent. I have come out completely drenched with inspiration. This is one of the most wonderful experiences I have had. This is a fourteen part composition by Elgar. He wrote the opening Adagio theme as a song for an...
  10. Recorded Music and Publications
    For absolutely FREE, you can hear the last 6 Bruckner symphonies with Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin. I've listened to 4, 8,and 9 and so far I've liked them very much. Lots of good camera work with detailed sound on my headphones. Seems to be a good range form treble to bass...
