"I feel extremely welcomed here. I have the opportunity to see everywhere here — the Opera House, Concert Hall and Theatre. It's amazing and unique in the world. China is not what I saw before. I see how Beijing is building itself a world capital. More and more Chinese musicians play classical music in the world, and it's one of the most interesting developments in the past few years."On November 18th-20th, maestro Daniel Barenboim will make his NCPA debut with the Staatskapelle Berlin, bringing music lovers a three-day feast with Brahms cycle, Schubert's "Unfinished" and Beethoven's "Eroica".
