Last night, we are told, was the first time Daniel Barenboim and Martha Argerich had appeared together with the Berlin Philharmonic.

Their collaboration goes back almost 75 years to their childhood in Buenos Aires.

Amid the gloomy news of Barenboim’s health, this reunion at the Philharmonie was exceptionally touching.

UPDATE: After the Schumann concerto, which Martha played and Daniel conducted, they played four-hand as an encore a suite from Bizet’s Jeux d’enfants.
