Barenboim Launches A YouTube Channel

Terry Teachout writes: ‘At 74, Daniel Barenboim is very much in the news. Among other things, he’s released a CD, “On My New Piano,” in which the celebrated pianist-conductor plays the music of Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Scarlatti and Wagner on a brand-new concert grand designed to his own specifications. What’s more, Mr. Barenboim’s latest venture, the Barenboim-Said Academy, a school for music students from the Middle East, recently opened in Berlin, not far from the Berlin State Opera, of which he is the music director. But the most consequential of his current undertakings may prove to be one that so far appears to have received next to no publicity: Mr. Barenboim has just launched his own YouTube channel.’
