Celebrating 60 Years with Daniel Barenboim
From January 19–29, for the first time in its history, Carnegie Hall presents a complete cycle of Anton Bruckner’s nine numbered symphonies in a single season, performed in chronological order by the Staatskapelle Berlin and Music Director Daniel Barenboim. The cycle is paired with six of Mozart’s most celebrated piano concertos—featuring Mr. Barenboim as soloist conducting from the keyboard. Also paired with the symphonies are two of the Mozart’s Sinfonia concertantes, featuring members of the Staatskapelle Berlin.
These January concerts and this monumental project mark the 60th anniversary of Daniel Barenboim’s Carnegie Hall debut on January 20, 1957. In honor of this special anniversary, we’re looking back at some of the more memorable moments drawn from his 60 years at Carnegie Hall.
