This is conductor/pianist Daniel Barenboim (Staatskapelle Berlin) rehearsing Rach 3 today with conductor/pianist Lahav Shani (Rotterdam Phil, Israel Phil).

Looks like they’re getting on.





  • Simon says:

    They did the reverse for Shani’s inaugural concert in Rotterdam, with Barenboim doing Beethoven’s 3rd piano concerto and Shani conducting.

  • Novagerio says:

    It’s called talent.

  • RW2013 says:

    Looking forward to Elgar’s Falstaff, a DB specialty.

  • M2N2K says:

    Next Thursday in Los Angeles: a concert with ALL THREE living music directors of the LA Phil conducting – first separately and then all of them together on stage leading a world premiere of a piece specifically written for the occasion: see https://www.laphil.com/events/performances/644/2019-10-24/centennial-birthday-celebration-concert-gala . Fairly safe to say, unprecedented.

  • Francois says:

    Lahav Shani can play piano but just so so
