Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin put on an unusually staged but powerfully sung performance of Wagner’s ‘Parsifal’ in this latest Blu-ray from BelAir Classiques.
An extremely well performed and seriously updated version of this Russian classic in which the musical values trump director Dmitri Tcherniakov’s efforts to overwhelm Rimsky-Korsakov’s original intentions.
Barenboim and his Berlin ensemble continue their successful series of Bruckner’s Mature Symphonies with an excellent rendering of Symphony No. 5.
Daniel Barenboim leads a powerful rendition of Bruckner’s popular Symphony No.4 from Berlin. A well recorded performance that delivers the full measure of romanticism.
This souvenir from the Chopin bicentenary year features stellar performances between pianist Daniel Barenboim and conductor Andris Nelsons leading the Staatskapelle Berlin orchestra. The sound recording is a bit dry while the videography is excellent.
