Musical moments are moments of memories, reflection, as a retrospect of the past and anticipation of the future. These are moments that enrich our lives with music that we already know or get to know in the moment of listening. Every two weeks, starting on 15th May, a new Musical Moment will be released by the yellow label performed by prestigious artists like Daniel Barenboim, Yuja Wang, Nadine Sierra, Avi Avital, Albrecht Mayer or Hilary Hahn just to name a few.

The first ‘Musical Moment’ to be released is performed by none other than conductor, pianist and Chopin connoisseur Daniel Barenboim. Enjoy this first Musical Moment and watch Barenboim’s interpretation of Frédéric Chopin’s Etude Op. 25 No. 1, recorded in a currently empty Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin.

“Ah, linger on, thou art so fair!” – J. W. Goethe
