Mariss Jansons and Daniel Barenboim perform Beethoven & Prokofiev



Two exceptional artists, three reasons to rejoice: Not only do Daniel Barenboim and Mariss Jansons both celebrate a milestone birthday these days. Barenboim returns to Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphonic Orchestra (BRSO) for a very special collaboration – ten years after his first performance as Piano soloist with them. From the first note onwards, the mutual respect, which these giants of classical music have for each other, is noticeable. Together they present a stunning rendition of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto, "No other piano player creates such a magical atmosphere in the quiet passages; no other is capable of stopping time hypnotically like this.” (Abendzeitung). The second part of the night is devoted to Sergei Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, considered by himself as the work to represent “the culmination of a large part of my creative life” and one of the most significant works by the Russian composer. PROGRAM: Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5; Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5
