Daniel and Michael Barenboim are back for another moment musical, live from Berlin's Pierre Boulez Saal!
They begin with Six Variations in G Minor, known under the title “Hélas, j’ai perdu mon amant” (Alas, I have lost my lover). Though the melody that inspired it was actually called “Au bord d’une fontaine” (By the edge of a fountain), the customary name is a perfect fit for the melancholy, plaintive tone the work evokes.
