Daniel Barenboim — Conductor

Program notes

At the 2018 Festival Barenboim in Buenos Aires, the man of the hour showed (again) why there's a festival named for him… Daniel Barenboim's cycle of Brahms's symphonies with the Staatskapelle Berlin demonstrates the maestro's decades-long rapport with the orchestra and the career's worth of reflection that informed his interpretations of these four masterpieces, the fruits of intense labor by a composer who succeeded remarkably in meeting and exceeding the lofty expectations placed on him.

This second and final volume features Symphonies No. 3 in F, whose rich melodies inspired the Sinatra tune "Take My Love," and No. 4 in E minor—perhaps the fullest realization of Brahms's symphonic talents, full of references to his predecessor Beethoven. Filmed in crisp HD, this benchmark Barenboim-Brahms meeting will have you, like the audience in Buenos Aires, on your feet at the climactic finish!
