Piano and Conductor: Daniel Barenboim
Running time: approx. 2 hours (no interval)
This fantastic event will be conducted by Daniel Barenboim, and Broadcast from Berlin in high definition and 5.1 surround sound to selected cinemas across the UK.
Barenboim, one of the Philharmoniker’s oldest friends, also takes on the role of soloist in Mozart’s Piano No. 26 – a work of sparkling beauty and nuanced expression. There are also four famous works by Maurice Ravel, which create an impressive synthesis of elegance and originality. The highlight is the Boléro, perhaps the most stunning crescendo in music.
The cinema broadcast will feature exclusive interviews and programme insights.
