Daniel Barenboim plays and conducts Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4 Staatskapelle Berlin

About

In a small apartment in Buenos Aires where Daniel Barenboim lived with his parents who were piano teachers, each time someone rang at the door, it was for a piano lesson.

"For a very long time, I thought everyone played the piano!" No, not everyone plays the piano, unfortunately, but he, Daniel, was to make his debut very young and give his first concert at the age of seven.
His family came back to Europe in 1951 then settled in Israel and he performed in the prestigious concert halls of Vienna and Salzburg. The two people he met who were to have a Major influence on his musical career were the pianist Edwin Fischer with whom he studied and the conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler who wrote him a letter of recommendation when he was eleven.
