West-Eastern Divan Orchestra / Daniel Barenboim
Strauss / Mozart / Saint-Saëns / Sibelius
»Music overcomes boundaries.« Life is rarely breathed into this hackneyed cliché in such refreshing fashion as by the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. The youth orchestra, made up in equal parts of Israeli and Arab musicians, has been a fixture of the international music scene for 17 years now. It was founded by star conductor Daniel Barenboim and the Palestinian professor of literature Edward Said, with the aim of improving the dialogue between the different cultures of the Middle East.
