Daniel Barenboim

All of the ingredients were there: perfect balance, an unerring sense of pace, thrilling drama, and the subtle ebb and flow of a conductor and orchestra performing as one. Daniel Barenboim’s conducting of the Ring Cycle at the BBC Proms was the musical experience of a lifetime for the thousands who heard it live and on air.
