A Holy Land Prodigy

In 1952, a 10-year-old Jewish boy made aliyah (immigrated) to Israel with his family. That boy, Daniel Barenboim, was already being recognized for his prodigious musical talent, as heard above in the Bach sonata he recorded at just the age of 12. He would go on to become one of the world’s most respected pianists and conductors, and would marry his wife Jacqueline du Pré (herself a cellist and one of the finest musicians ever) at the Western Wall. But it all began with “Danny Barenboim,” an Israeli boy at the piano.
