Daniel Barenboim conducts Strauss and Carter

“If Haydn were alive today,” says Daniel Barenboim, “he might compose like Elliott Carter did in his last years.” To prove his theory, Barenboim conducted two of Carter’s late concertos of finely chiselled beauty in 2009, with flutist Emmanuel Pahud and pianist Nicolas Hodges as soloists. The concertos were contrasted with two rich, powerful works by Richard Strauss: Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel.
