Daniel Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra perform Mozart, Beethoven and Elgar Live in Ramallah

About

Daniel Barenboim conducts the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra for a historic concert in the West Bank.

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra was founded in 1999 by the Argentine-Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim and the Palestinian-American academic Edward Said with the ambition to promote understanding between Israelis and Palestinians and pave the way for a peaceful and fair solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Every year, eighty musicians from Israel and the neighbouring Arab States (Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinian territories) gather under Daniel Barenboim's baton.

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra's concert in Ramallah in 2005 was a highly iconic event: for the first time, the orchestra performed in the West Bank. For this historic event, Daniel Barenboim and his orchestra performed Mozart's Sinfonia concertante KV 297b, Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Elgar's Enigma Variations.
