West-Eastern Divan Orchestra & Barenboim

It is always an extraordinary event to receive a visit from Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra! Partly because the orchestra is so highly skilled, and partly because the story behind the orchestra plays on the heart strings!

The orchestra was formed in 1999 by Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said as a workshop for Israeli, Palestinian and other Arabic musicians – in the hope that music could replace the hostility, prejudice and ignorance with education, knowledge and understanding. To show that enemies can be humanised, and thereby form the setting for a better and more peaceful world. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra still has a vibrant and relevant spirit, and the orchestra has developed into a world-famous and highly respected orchestra.
