Daniel Barenboim wows audiences across Europe with his Bach recitals

In the past two weeks Daniel Barenboim has been in Munich, Brussels, Zürich, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris and London giving recitals of Book 1 or Book 2 of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. The halls have been full and the audience response incredible – photographs of the standing ovation at London’s Barbican Hall can be seen here. At the venue tickets were in such demand that they even had extra seating on the stage. The reviews have been stunning too, in particular The Times and The Guardian. Daniel Barenboim’s recordings of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier Books 1 and 2 are available now on Warner Classics.
