If you can't see the video above, try the Al Jazeera website.
Thanks for that. Very good. Can't imagine the BBC running a 45 minute interview with someone like him, sadly.

Thank you Intermezzo for this wonderful and interesting interview. When was it done?

Oh, they most certainly would. The sticking point here is the oleaginous and self-serving fawnster Frost...

Why not? It seems exactly like something the BBC would do. There was a 90 minute documentary with Barenboim on Beethoven last year, before the broadcast of all 9 symphonies (part of the BBC Proms). That's an investment of broadcast time I highly doubt Al Jazeera (or any other major broadcaster in the world) would match - in fact, that is something Barenboim himself said after the final Beethoven 9th Prom. Thomas Hampson was very recently interviewed on BBC's Hard Talk, and I'm sure there are countless other examples. I don't work for the BBC, but I very often wonder why they get so much negative comments from classical music enthusiasts.
