CAMI Music is delighted to welcome Michael Barenboim to its distinguished roster of artists.
“Barenboim makes it all sound easy, though, with performances spilling over with life and drama. Every work’s soul has been ignited and revealed, every second telling a story, all unmarred by a single glitch in intonation or articulation […] this is indisputably exciting playing across an indisputably effective programme.” – Gramophone
Michael Barenboim lets music, in its diverse and enduring ways, speak for itself through his violin. His performances are praised by the critics as “stunning”, “exciting, “utterly persuasive and compelling”.
Committed to the core classical and romantic repertoire, he is deeply invested and specially recognized for his performances of the 20th century and contemporary repertoire. Barenboim celebrates a long history of collaboration with the late Pierre Boulez, whose pieces he regularly performs in recital and with the Boulez Ensemble. He has recently recorded both Boulez’s Anthèmes 1 & 2 on Accentus.
Michael Barenboim makes this season his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic, performing Schönberg’s Violin Concerto under the baton of Z. Mehta. This follows other successful debuts performing this particular concerto, including the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of D. Barenboim, Chicago Symphony under A. Fisch, and Israel Philharmonic under Z. Mehta.
Other highlights of the current season will see Michael appearing at the Enescu Festival with the Philharmonia Orchestra under V. Ashkenazy, Den Norske Opera Orchestra under D. Hindoyan, Freiburg Philharmonic under F. Ballon, on tour with the Italian Youth Orchestra, and in solo recital at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Teatro Sao Carlo di Napoli, Teatro Comunale di Bologna, and Kumho Art Hall.
