Barenboim returns to Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphonic Orchestra (BRSO) for a very special collaboration - ten years after his first performance as Piano soloist with them. From the first note onwards, the mutual respect, which these giants of classical music have for each other, is noticeable. Together they present a stunning rendition of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto, "No other piano player creates such a magical atmosphere in the quiet passages; no other is capable of stopping time hypnotically like this.” (Abendzeitung).

Thanking the audience of the Munich Philharmonie for their enthusiasm, Barenboim gives the hauntingly beautiful "Clair de Lune" by Claude Debussy as encore, “a contrasting piano miniature which seems magical.” (Bachtrack).

The second part of the night is devoted to Sergei Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, considered by himself as the work to represent “the culmination of a large part of my creative life” and one of the most significant works by the Russian composer.
