Notes & Reviews:

Recorded at the 2007 Salzburg Festival, comes the incredible concert of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. Founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said, the youth orchestra, based in Sevilla, Spain, consists of musicians from middle-eastern countries like Egypt, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. The ensemble, created to help promote understanding and peace, has been raved by Munich's Abenzeitung who says it, "proved its status as a first-class orchestra that has no need to shy from comparisons with the philharmonic 'top dogs' from Vienna or Berlin."

... Barenboim surely knows and loves these works, deriving the last ounce of pleasure that they provide. This performance is supported by excellent videography and audio recording... The clarity and detail of the performers is excellent and draws the viewer into the very intimate side of concertizing. There is a good balance between close ups and pans without frenetic camera shifting. Most importantly, you are given a unique experience of seeing young people, and I mean young people complete with piercings, from different backgrounds yet clearly synergistic when it comes to music... they would still be trumped by the overall impact of these performances. I can only hope that C Major will issue more West Eastern Divan Orchestra videos. If they do, I will be the first person in line to get them. Mazeltov and Mabrouk!
