What Are You Doing New Year's Day?

Dec 30, 2013

WRTI wishes you a happy, healthy, and peaceful 2014! Join us on New Year's Day at 11 am for the 74th annual Vienna Philharmonic concert broadcast from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna. Daniel Barenboim conducts works by the Strauss family including Eduard Strauss, Josef Strauss, Johann Strauss, sen., Johann Strauss, Jr., Josef Hellmesberger, Jr., Richard Strauss, Joseph Lanner, and Leo Delibes. Wednesday, January 1, 11 am on WRTI.

Don't miss what promises to be a fabulous concert brought to you live from the intimate Le Poisson Rouge in New York City. Founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward W. Said in 1999, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra brings together young musicians from Israel, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt – joined by a number of musicians from Iran, Turkey and Spain – to perform music and promote mutual understanding, non-violence and reconciliation.

This will be a live webcast, right here on WRTI.org, on Tuesday, January 29th at 8 pm. Join us!

Daniel Barenboim conducts Beethoven's Ninth to launch the 2012 Olympics...and you'll hear the entire concert on WRTI!

Barenboim’s Beethoven cycle reaches its climax with a youthful take on the traditional annual Proms performance of the Ninth, perhaps the richest, most provocative statement in Western art music.

Beethoven — For A Buck

Jul 16, 2012

To own all the piano sonatas Beethoven wrote, you used to have to buy at least 10 CDs and spend $50, $75, $100 — or more.

What if I told you that you could get them for less than $10? That's about $1 per hour of music.

That's right — the "Moonlight," "Appassionata," "Waldstein" and all your other favorites, for just $9.99!

World-renowned Israeli pianist-conductor Daniel Barenboim is Jill Pasternak's guest this week on Crossover. One of the most versatile pianists of his generation, Barenboim has collaborated with violinists Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman, as well as his late wife, British cellist Jacqueline du Pr. In January 2008, his virtuosic musicianship was recognized with a Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal, one of the most prestigious honors in classical music.
