Violinist Michael Barenboim is in Auckland to perform Schoenberg's Violin Concerto in the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra's concert called 'Degenerate'. The works by Mendelssohn, Stravinsky and Schoenberg were all banned by the Third Reich, which would've made this concert illegal in 1940s Germany. Michael Barenboim talks with Eva Radich.
