"Multiple Identities" Encounters with Daniel Barenboim

This documentary tracks the pianist-conductor Daniel Barenboim from summer 1999 through Berlin, Chicago, Tel Aviv and Weimar up to his stage anniversary in Buenos Aires, in summer 2000, and ends up with his controversial performance of "Prelude and Liebestod" from Wagner's Tristan and Isolde in Jerusalem in summer 2001.
