Daniel Barenboim is one of today's most outstanding artists. As a pianist and conductor, he has been active for decades in major cities across Europe and all around the world; as the founder of several orchestras and the initiator of several highly acclaimed projects, he has contributed decisively to international music life. 

Daniel Barenboim was born in Buenos Aires in 1942. He first received piano instruction from his mother, later from his father, and held his first public recital at age seven in Buenos Aires. In 1952, he moved to Israel with his parents. At age 11, Daniel Barenboim participated in conducting classes in Salzburg with Igor Markevitch. In the summer of 1954, he met Wilhelm Furtwängler and performed for him. Furtwängler subsequently wrote, "The eleven year old Daniel Barenboim is a true phenomenon." Until 1956, he studied harmony and composition with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. 

At age 10, Daniel Barenboim had his debuts as a solo pianist in Vienna and Rome; this was followed by debuts in Paris (1955), London (1956), and in New York (1957) where he played with Leopold Stokowski. Since then, he has undertaken regular tours in Europe, the U.S., South America, Australia, and the Far East. 

Numerous recordings attest to Daniel Barenboim's great artistic stature as a pianist and a conductor. In 1954, he began with solo recordings, including Beethoven's piano sonatas. In the 1960s, he recorded Beethoven's piano concertos with Otto Klemperer conducting, Brahms piano concertos with Sir John Barbirolli, and all of Mozart's piano concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra, where he conducted from the piano. As an accompanist, he has worked regularly with important singers such as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau ... read full bio
