In a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience, Daniel Barenboim-one of the great Bruckner conductors of our time-returns to Carnegie Hall after a four-year absence to lead the Staatskapelle Berlin in the numbered symphonies of the revered Austrian master. In a recent conversation, Barenboim reflected on his first exposure to Bruckner's works and why they have since become highlights of his repertoire.     PHOTO: Holger Kettner
