Berliner Philharmoniker - Daniel Barenboim plays Mozart's Piano Concertos
1 Apr 2012
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Other participants: Berliner Philharmoniker, Daniel Barenboim
This exceptional production, shot in 1988/1989 on 35 mm film and directed by George Moorse, Jean-Pierre Ponnelle and Klaas Rusticus, has been digitally remastered with the greatest care for high-quality audio and video restoration. The music of Mozart has been an essential driving force of Daniel Barenboim’s entire life. It remains central to his performing career both as a pianist and as a conductor. These illuminating performances of Mozart’s last eight great piano concertos admirably demonstrate Barenboim’s dictum that even when a true musician has already performed a familiar work hundreds of times, he or she ‘never accepts that the next note will be played the same way as it was played before’. Amongst the orchstra legendary musicians are playing: Toru Yasunaga and Leon Spierer, Daniel Stabrawa and Soloists Karl Leister (Clarinette), Gerd Seifert (Horn), Hanns-Joachim Westphal (Violin) and Karlheinz Zöller (Flute). Released on EuroArts’s new sub-label: Recorded Excellence – Historical Value.
