Description
In this gala New Year's Eve Concert from 2001, Barenboim leads the Berlin Philharmonic in the Gavotte from Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3; the Menuetto from Mozart's Divertimento in D, K. 334, and his Rondo for Piano and Orchestra, K. 382; the "Dance of the Little Moorish Slaves" from Verdi's Aida; Dvorák's Furiant from Slavonic Dances, Op. 46/B. 83; Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" from The Nutcracker; Sibelius's Valse triste; Johann Strauss II's Emperor Waltz and Thunder and Lightning; Kodály's Dances from Galánta; A fuego lento by Horacio Salgán; Tico Tico by de Abreu/Oliveira; El firulete by José Carli; and Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 1.

"When Barenboim was 11 years old, Wilhelm Furtwä ngler described him as 'a phenomenon', and the Wunderkind did not disappoint. On this DVD, we are afforded many aspects of Barenboim as pianist, conductor, chamber musician, arranger. The selections range from Bach through Mozart and early- and late-Romantic repertoire, peppered with Latin-American whimsical pieces reflecting Barenboim's international background…. The Philharmonic and its soloists shed their staid 'front' and engage enthusiastically and virtuosically in even the most whimsical of 'pop' pieces. Barenboim's unique conducting style, employing a minimum of gesture, recalls that of Leonard Bernstein's: When the music is self-generating, stand aside and let it speak for itself!"—Cliff's Classics
