10. Who better to kick off the top ten than Daniel Barenboim, every inch the musical legend? This year, as if carrying the Olympic flag wasn't enough, he did something else for humanity as well - he recorded a huge series of Beethoven works with his West-Easter Divan Orchestra under the umbrella of 'Beethoven For All'. This disc, entitled Power, Passion and Beauty, gets straight to the business-end of Beethoven's music, with fantastic readings of movements from the fifth, sixth and ninth symphonies, as well as Barenboim himself tackling the piano sonatas and concertos.
