Daniel Barenboim & the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra – Live in Salzburg
Salzburg Festival, 2021
In this concert, Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra trace a line of the development from Viennese Classical through to the height of the Romantic period. Beethoven's Prometheus Overture is followed by Brahms's Double Concerto, for which the composer was inspired by his productive – but not conflict-free – friendship with violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim. César Franck made an important and innovative contribution to music history with his Symphony in D minor, in which all movements are linked by a common theme. Kian Soltani and Michael Barenboim, concertmaster and former principal cellist of the WEDO, step into the limelight as soloists in Brahms's concerto.
