Barenboim on Beethoven, BBC2

Janet McCraig has been putting her editing skills to good use at Rare Day on ‘Barenboim on Beethoven: Nine symphonies that changed the world’

In this on off programme Daniel Barenboim explores the unique sequence of masterpieces that have inspired and moved the world since their creation – the nine symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven. Rehearsing and conducting his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, made up of young musicians from across the Middle East divide, Barenboim demonstrates the means by which Beethoven forged a new symphonic language while also investigating how this music continues to communicate with such undiminished power.
