Notes and Editorial Reviews

Through the world of sound we are able to understand a great many things about the human condition in the broadest and deepest sense’ (Daniel Barenboim, Gramophone).

Barenboim’s commitment, humanism and passion for music have manifested themselves throughout his long and distinguished career, and make him one of today’s best-loved and most iconic artists. Featuring Barenboim as solo pianist, conductor, and directing from the piano as part of his legendary Mozart cycle with the English Chamber Orchestra, this set is testimony to his remarkable and multifacted musicianship.
