HOT: Daniel Barenboim Beethoven Sonata Series, Royal Festival Hall
Royal Festival Hall will be the place to be for the next three weeks as classical music superstar, Daniel Barenboim, plays all 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas, the New Testament of classical music (Bach's 48 Preludes and Fugues being the Old Testament). With my student card valid until 2009, I couldn't miss the chance on getting half price seats for all the concerts as I love his playing and I love Beethoven. The whole auditorium held its breath in every movement while Daniel took them from high drama to the most delicate of tones. This event will be something to tell my grandchildren.
