HOT: Daniel Barenboim Beethoven Piano Sonata Series (Concert 2), Royal Festival Hall
I wasn't on sleep-inducing drugs for this concert so was fully able to appreciate the beauty of his playing. It amazed me that he could draw such an incredible range of tone from the piano - at times delicate, sonorific, playful and tender. My favourite pieces were the final movements of all four sonatas that he played. I came away feeling privileged to be able to attend this wonderful experience.
