Michael & Daniel Barenboim play Mozart Violin Sonatas - Part 1
Pierre Boulez Saal
By 1784, Wolfang Amadeus Mozart had developed the violin sonata into a work that highlighted the growing independence and virtuosity of the stringed instrument. Placing equal importance on the violin and piano, the musical themes are continuously passed between them, in one ever-flowing conversation. An interaction and dialogue that requires open and honest communication finds no better combination than that of father and son, with renowned conductor and pianist Daniel and violinist son Michael Barenboim. The duo performs two of Mozart’s integral late Viennese sonatas, No. 32 in B Flat Major, written for the violinist Regina Strinasacchi, and No. 33 in E Flat, in this recital at the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin.
