Three legendary musicians join forces for Beethoven’s iconic Triple Concerto in his 250th anniversary year.
Pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim is joined by violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the two of whom play together on stage for the first time in 40 years.
Additionally featuring Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, the recording also celebrates 20 years of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, founded by Barenboim and Edward Said to promote the peaceful coexistence of different cultures – a message still relevant today, and perfectly encapsulated in Beethoven’s joyous music.
