Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 (Proms 2012)

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra Co-Founded and lead by the famous conductor Daniel Barenboim played at the Royal Albert hall in July this summer (2012).  Here they are playing the Beethoven Symphony No. 6.   What is remarkable about this orchestra is that it is made up of young musicians who would never have the opportunity to meet let alone make music together if it wasn't for the great belief that Maestro Barenboim has that music can bring the world together, even when they are in conflict with one another.  Perhaps that is the most important time they need to be playing music together.  In this case it is young people from Israel and Palestine.   Note by note these young people are using music to change the world they live in.
