On April 23, Barenboim and the Staatskapelle appear at the recently opened Philharmonie de Paris, where they perform works by Wagner and Pierre Boulez, along with Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto with Argerich as soloist.

From Paris, the musicians head to Basel, where the orchestra performs Schubert’s Seventh Symphony, "Unfinished," and Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben on April 24.

Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin round out their European tour on April 25 in Munich with Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto, featuring Argerich, and Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben.
