Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert 2022

The Argentine-Israeli (but also Spanish) pianist and conductor, who will turn 80 in 2022, has conducted his most profound and emotional New Year’s Concert, after the jubilant editions of 2009 and 2014.

Precisely, that waltz by Josef Strauss serves as a point of comparison. Daniel Barenboim conducted it, in 2009, without the score on the lectern, with more emphatic gestures and with a more solemn tone. Now he has “read” it with extreme humility in front of the Viennese orchestra, with minimal gestures and an astonishing musical result.
