Music for peace. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim


The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is a utopia become real. I have watched them perform at the BBC Proms and they are a revelation. In truth, what religion and ethnicity have traditionally put asunder is brought together under the baton of a distinguished musician who is willing to go the extra mile.

Music will not save the world, but it may help people who are deeply and bitterly entrenched in their historic feuds reach out to their neighbours, share in their personal and collective narratives and perhaps see “the other” as a mirror without which they wouldn’t truly succeed in fully knowing their own identity.
