It's ten years since the Israeli pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim co-founded the extraordinary West-Eastern Divan Orchestra with the late Palestinian-American historian Edward Said and, though the Israel-Palestine conflict remains unresolved, these young Arab and Israeli musicians continue to prove that music-making knows no boundaries. But, as Barenboim admits, "the full dimension of our project will be realised only when we are able to play in all the countries represented by the members of the orchestra". They demonstrate their versatility with challenging programmes. At 7:00pm, they tackle Liszt, Wagner (only recently heard in concert in Israel under Barenboim's baton), and Berlioz; and at 10:15pm Mendelssohn and Berg (where Barenboim's violinist son Michael joins the ensemble).

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.
Members of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra play Mendelssohn's Octet and Berg's musical monument to friendship. The ensemble includes Daniel Baremboim's violinist son Michael and his pianist protege Karim Said, a relative of the orchestra's co-founder, the late Edward Said.
