Maintaining this month’s Rossini theme, we’ve a sparkling production of La Pietra del paragone conducted by Rossini expert Alberto Zedda from Madrid and La Cenerentola from Glyndeboune, as well as a concert with Cecilia Bartoli from Barcelona’s gorgeous Palau de la Música Catalana. Catch Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra on a recent tour in the US. At Carnegie Hall, in a concert in memory of Isaac Stern, they play Richard Strauss’s Don Quixote (with the young DG-signed cellist Kian Soltani) and Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. With Lang Lang back giving concerts and focusing on the music of Mozart, try a documentary with him and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, "Mission Mozart." And for a masterclass, Michael Tilson Thomas explores Brahms’s Second Symphony with students and the New World Symphony.
