Daniel Barenboim in Buenos Aires - mid 20th Century

from Everything is connected : the power of music, page 168:

Of course, as a child I knew who Furtwängler was. I had heard him in Buenos Aires conducting the St Matthew Passion and naturally it was something very special when I was introduced to him in the summer of 1954.
