The term "busy as a bee" should be changed to "busy as a Barenboim." Pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim seems to work non-stop, performing at least 150 concerts a year. Today and tomorrow, we'll feature Barenboim in the two piano concertos by Frederic Chopin, from the same concert last month in Berlin. Asher Fisch conducts the Berlin Philharmonic.
