I wonder if anyone heard Desert Island Discs today where Barenboim once again engaged with Sue Lawley, attempted to imitate the spoken voices of Janet Baker and Clifford Curzon, and chose his favourite, somewhat predicatable, favourite recordings? An interesting complement to the Reith Lectures, I thought.

Worth a 'listen again' ?
