Pianist Daniel Barenboim was hospitalized early Saturday in Berlin, shortly before he was set to perform in a concert commemorating the 250th birthday of the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Head of the Berlin opera house where Barenboim is the artistic director said that he had no details on the condition of the Israeli pianist. Barenboim, 63, won a prestigious international prize two days before the incident. He said that he planned on donating 50,000 euros of his prize money to renovate the opera house and advance young musicians, Israel Radio reported.
