Andermatt Music Winter Festival brings to Andermatt in January 2020, another “Star” of the Classical Music, Daniel Barenboim. A child prodigy as a pianist and a virtuoso conductor of symphonics and operas, Barenhoim has known and worked with many of the most distinguished and exciting musicians of the 20th century, including Rubinstein, Furtwangler, Zubin Meta, Pierre Boulez, Fisher-Diskau, Pablo Casals, and not least his wife, Jacqueline du Pre. Recent years have included his work at the annual Wagner festival Bayreuth; in Berlin at the rebirth of the State Opera House; taking over from George Solti's 22-year regin in Chicago; his summer festival in Weimar, Germany, where young Arabs and Israelis can play music together; and his worldwide travels. -One of the world's greatest musicians, Barenboim has a dedicated following who will be interested in reading about his life in his own words.
-Barenboim was married to celebrated cellist Jacqueline du Pre, the subject of the controversial film Hilary and Jackie.
-His championship of peaceful coexistence with Palestinians is highly controversial, as is his insistence on playing Wagner in Israel. Read the whole article @goodreads referred to the @dbarenboim book “ A life in music” 🎶 🎼
