Summer concerts with Maestro Barenboim

During August 2023, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, led by the baton of Daniel Barenboim, will grace the stage with two distinct programs. The inaugural concert series will showcase Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in C major, Op. 15, along with Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73. Originally set to take the soloist's role, Martha Argerich unfortunately had to withdraw due to health reasons. In her place, Igor Levit will be performing the solo part in Ludwig van Beethoven's First Piano Concerto. We wish Martha Argerich a speedy recovery and extend our sincere thanks to Igor Levit for stepping in at short notice. These performances will be the first opportunity to hear the Igor Levit with Maestro Barenboim and the Divan Orchestra.

Two special concerts at Berlin's Pierre Boulez Saal, as part of the Edward W. Said Days 2023 of the Barenboim-Said Akademie, will round off the summer performances. In the remarkable hall designed by Frank Gehry in Berlin, the musicians, together with Daniel Barenboim, will present Mozart's last three symphonies.
