Daniel Barenboim (b1942)

The only child of musical parents, Barenboim studied first with his mother, then with his father. After his debut in Buenos Aires at the age of seven, his parents (descendants of Russian Jews from Odessa) decided to move to Israel. On the way, they stopped at Salzburg where ten-year-old Daniel played and conducted at the Mozarteum. In the mid-1950s he studied in Europe for three consecutive summers: conducting with Igor Markevitch in Salzburg; composition with Nadia Boulanger in Paris; violin, composition and theory at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome; and conducting with Carlo Zecchi in Siena. Interestingly, he did not study piano with anyone after the tuition from his father.

Barenboim played in Europe in 1955 and made his London debut the following year at the Royal Festival Hall, playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto in A major K. 488 with Josef Krips; Barenboim was fourteen years old. When he made his American debut at Carnegie Hall with Leopold Stokowski he was already under contract to concert agent Sol Hurok through the intervention of Arthur Rubinstein. From the age of seventeen Barenboim had a full-time career as a pianist. During the 1960s he frequently appeared in Britain, where he played and directed the complete Mozart piano concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra. He repeated this feat in New York and Paris and in 1965 toured the Soviet Union. In 1972 he premièred a piano concerto by Alexander Goehr at the Brighton Festival.
