Beethoven 9th & more from Barenboim

Join us at 7PM for Beethoven's 9th Symphony (preceded by his 2nd) in a concert by Daniel Barenboim and his orchestra of young Israeli and Arab musicians, the West-Eastern Divan. Before, at 5 pm, you can hear him lead the Vienna Philharmonic in Johann Strauss, Jr., and - as pianist - play Mendelssohn, Mozart, and the Chopin Concerto no. 2 (conducted by the Boston Symphony's new music director, Andris Nelsons). You'll also hear him say, "I pray every day that I will not get comfortable in my old age."
