Daniel Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, Cal Performances
R. Strauss/Don Quixote, Op. 35
Tchaikovsky/Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64
Nearly 20 years ago, Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim and Palestinian scholar Edward Said founded this orchestra of Israelis and Arabs as a model for cooperation across the brutal divides of the Middle East. In doing so, they hoped to replace ignorance with education, knowledge, and understanding; to humanize the other; and to imagine a more hopeful future.
