Beethoven for All, Barenboim
Ludwig van Beethoven was not only considered one of the greatest composer who ever worked in the Western Art Music Tradition but was also one of the most passionate personalities of the time. This compilation covers the full gamut of emotions, from the happiness of the Pastoral Symphony to the majesty of the Symphony No 9. Daniel Barenboim is both the conductor as pianist and his love for this music is obvious in every phrases. He says, ‘Beethoven’s music is for everyone, everywhere’ and I think this small but significant set proves it.
