Everyday Rather Live in Classic Eras

Daniel Barenboim conducts concert to promote peace between Israel and Palestine

Music lovers in Buenos Aires took to the streets this weekend to support conductor Daniel Barenboim and his orchestra of Middle Eastern musicians in a concert designed to promote peace between Israel and Palestine. Thousands turned out to hear Vivaldiin Sunday’s free outdoor performance played by the maestro’s ensemble, made up by young Israeli and Palestinian musicians.

Barenboim, who holds both Israeli and Palestinian citizenship, had previously called for negotiation, empathy and compassion between the two states. He applauded the fact that the conflict did not prevent any member of the orchestra from engaging in this gesture of understanding and peace.
