Daniel Barenboim conducts Widmann, Liszt, Schubert, and Wagner at the BBC Proms – With Martha Argerich West-Eastern Divan Orchestra

About

“Proms don’t come more stellar than this! Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra would have comfortably filled the hall on their own, while Martha Argerich could have filled it three times over.” (The Independent) Yet another resounding endorsement for one of today’s most groundbreaking classical music ensembles and their legendary artistic director! Their action-packed BBC Proms concert featured everything from a riotous 21st-century reinterpretation of Beethoven’s late symphonies (Jörg Widmann’s Con Brio) to Martha Argerich’s dazzling performance of Franz Liszt’s First Piano Concerto (as put by The Guardian, “her playing [is] as frighteningly precise as it has always been”) to a second half devoted to popular selections from Wagner’s operatic masterpieces (Tannhäuser, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Götterdämmerung, and Lohengrin). Be sure to catch this evening of masterful music-making in the name of tolerance and understanding between different cultures and religions, as is the case for every performance of the brilliant West-Eastern Divan Orchestra!
