Daniel Barenboim by Peter Adamik
The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra—founded by Daniel Barenboim and the late Palestinian literary scholar Edward Said—promotes coexistence and intercultural dialogue by bringing young Israelis, Palestinians, and Arabs together to make music. For this concert, they tell great musical tales in vibrant orchestral colors and lush melodies. Strauss assigns the cello the role of the beguiled Don in a work that vividly portrays episodes from Cervantes’s famous Don Quixote. Tchaikovsky’s work may not tell a literal story, but fate and doubts figure prominently, and he gives voice to all in a gripping journey from darkness to triumph.

Tchaikovsky did not assign a formal program to his Symphony No. 5, but his diaries speak of fate, doubts, and reproaches—all ideas that find voice in this work. Meticulously scored, the symphony’s inspired melodies and dramatic urgency trace a gripping journey from darkness to triumph.
