• Barenboim, West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, and Beethoven

    Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said, the late esteemed scholar and critic, founded the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in 1999 to enable intercultural dialogue and to promote the experience of collaborating as a matter of common interest.

    This group of Israeli, Palestinian, and other Arab musicians continues its mission at Carnegie Hall between January 30 and February 3 with a complete cycle of Beethoven's nine symphonies.
