HOT:Daniel Barenboim Beethoven Piano Sonata Series (Concert 8), Royal Festival Hall
Three weeks of intense piano recital attendance and now I'm not sure what to do with myself. After a slightly tired performance in concert 7, Barenboim was back on form, roaring to the end with superb power and passion. He came away from the piano looking overcome and drained, and I was almost moved to tears - such a monumental achievement by an incredible artist.
