School for the Ear – West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (I/III) The Phenomenon of Sound – With Daniel Barenboim

About

Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said's unbelievable idea of uniting young musicians from Israel, Palestine and various Arab countries into a musical ensemble.

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra has been flourishing since its foundation in 1999. The project, says Barenboim, brings together these young people "not so that they forget or hide their differences, but so that they can understand them." He adds that "making music together gives us the best opportunity to learn to live with one another." The concerts presented here were recorded at the 2007 Salzburg Festival, during the orchestras residency.
