Berlin will publish the pay of its chief conductors

The salaries of Daniel Barenboim and Sir Simon Rattle as heads of the Staatsoper and the Berlin Philharmonic are not a matter of public record, as they would be in the US. The incoming culture senator Klaus Lederer, a member of the Left party, intends to share the information when he takes office in ten days’ time, according to local reports. Will anyone be shocked?

Sibelius and Tchaikovsky Concertos

If you enjoy music for violin and orchestra, then this new recording is for you. It features two composers whose music is so often passionate and tender. But also two performers who are amazing figures in classical music of our day. Here are some details: Tchaikovsky & Sibelius Violin Concertos Sibelius: Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47 Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35 Performed by Lisa Batiashvili (violin), with the Staatskapelle Berlin, Daniel Barenboim conducting. Lisa Batiashvili and the Staatskapelle Berlin under Daniel Barenboim’s baton present an unforgettable version of Tchaikovsky’s and Sibelius’ violin concertos, two of the most beloved, passionate and demanding pieces for violin and orchestra This album celebrates a Powerful collaboration of one of the finest violinists of our times with one of the best orchestras of the world and the legendary pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim. Ten years ago Daniel Barenboim initiated Berlin’s open-air concerts on the historic Bebelplatz. In each of the last four years the guest soloist has been Lisa Batiashvili, who on each occasion has performed one of the world’s great violin concertos: Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky in 2015 and in this year, Sibelius. As Lisa recalls, her musical partnership with Daniel Barenboim started over the phone: “Barenboim heard me for the first time during a television broadcast of the Sibelius Concerto with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Shortly afterwards he rang me up to congratulate me and ask me if we could perform the piece together.” Here is a six minute extract, showing a rehearsal for this performance.
