Daniel Barenboim conducts the 1997 Europakonzert from Versailles

The Palace of Versailles is the very epitome of Baroque magnificence. In 1997 it was the scene of the Europakonzert given annually by the Berliner Philharmoniker. The conductor was Daniel Barenboim, who was also the soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 13. The programme additionally featured Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony and, as a tribute to the venue, Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, a delightful homage to François Couperin, who was once court composer in Versailles.
