The Conductor: Daniel Barenboim

Daniel Barenboim, Conductor and Pianist Extraordinaire, Has Two Passions in Life: His Music and His Cigars
Mervyn Rothstein
From the Print Edition:
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Summer 96

(continued from page 4)

It is a love affair between audience and musician, between a man and his music. It is an affair he wants to continue and to expand.

"There's a lot of piano repertory I haven't played," Barenboim says. "When I took the positions with the Chicago Symphony and the Staatsoper, I made a conscious decision to diminish the quantity of my piano playing. It was just not physically possible to do it all. But I miss it. It's essential to me that I find a way to make more time for the piano."

Essential, like a good cigar.

Mervyn Rothstein is an editor at The New York Times and a frequent contributor to Cigar Aficionado and Wine Spectator.
