Something I Like

Posted on the 27 July 2012 by Irinastanescu
BBC Proms is a celebration of music. One month and a half of symphonic concerts, opera in concert, recitals, chamber music and so on. Can't be there but listen to the performances on radio every evening. 
A+ to Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra who performed ALL nine Beethoven's symphonies in one week. All of them. This is really amazing. And judging by the reaction of the audience, they give their best each evening. Wish I were there, especially for the 7th symphony, my favorite. This evening he ended gloriously the series with Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Congrats, maestro!
There are some fragments (video and audio) are available on BBC iPlayer. Such as this one.
Long live the Proms! And have a nice Summer weekend!
