Daniel Barenboim, the ill conductor and pianist of the Berlin State Opera, is expected to return to the Unter den Linden soon. On April 13, the 79-year-old had to cancel a concert in Berlin because of acute circulatory problems, and he has been receiving medical treatment ever since.

A rare inflammatory disease of the arteries was diagnosed at the Charité. According to the doctors, the therapy is working well. “A full recovery” is expected within the next few weeks.
