Beethoven: Triple Concerto Lp / Mutter, Ma, Barenb
Anne-Sophie Mutter (violin), Yo-Yo Ma (cello), Daniel Barenboim (piano/conductor) West-Eastern Divan Orchestra
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.
