Barenboim on Beethoven 10: The Symphonist A film by Christopher Nupen

About

When we think of Beethoven as a symphonist par excellence, it is not only because of his nine legendary symphonies—it is also because “almost all his music, symphonic, instrumental or vocal, has a certain unmistakable symphonic character about it.” Join Daniel Barenboim for an up-close look at the singular qualities with which Beethoven imbued all his work—the “sheer breadth of his expression,” his “sensitivity for color and sound… just as acute as that of the French Impressionists,” and his compulsion to depict and overcome the great struggle of the human condition.
