About

Anticipating Daniel Barenboim’s 75th birthday (November 2017) Deutsche Grammophon celebrates his remarkable artistry as a pianist with this 39-CD anniversary edition of his complete solo recordings on Deutsche Grammophon and Westminster. This set presents a solo career spanning 60 years – and allows us to observe his artistic development through very early recordings as a talented 13-year-old to the present day.

Daniel Barenboim, one of the outstanding musical figures of our time, began piano lessons at the age of five and gave his first official concert in Buenos Aires when he was seven. In 1954, at the age of twelve, he took part in Igor Markevitch’s conducting classes and over the following two years studied harmony and composition with Nadia Boulanger in Paris.

Following his debut in Vienna and Rome in 1952, Barenboim soon became known as one of the most versatile pianists of his generation. Major debuts followed in Paris (1955), London (1956) and New York, where he performed with Leopold Stokowski (1957).

His recording career began in 1954; his close association with Deutsche Grammophon beginning in 1972. Barenboim’s vast discography on DG Decca features the artist as both conductor and as pianist. It is in the latter role, as soloist, which he is celebrated in this 39-CD box marking his 75th birthday.

Includes the Westminster Recordings of Beethoven and Mozart, the Warsaw Chopin Recital,  “On my new Piano” (2016), and Rare First Recordings on Philips (1955, Bonus CD).

“Always authoritative, Barenboim leads the way with playing of suppleness and wit.” - BBC Music Magazine

“... it explodes into colour - honeyed, warm, or thunderous as the drama demands ... for DG they acquire singing beauty.” - BBC Music Magazine, 2008 on Barenboim’s Beethoven Sonatas

“... highly charged grandeur contrasted with expansive lyricism.” - Financial Times, 2014 on Barenboim’s Schubert Piano Sonatas
