Daniel Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra – the much-lauded ensemble of young Arab and Israeli musicians that Barenboim co-founded in 1999 with the late Palestinian-born literary scholar Edward Said – embark on an eight-city European tour this summer as part of their multi-year Beethoven for All project, which seeks to take the composer’s message of common humanity to audiences around the world. Highlights of the tour include a concert at Castel Gandolfo at the invitation of Pope Benedict XVI (July 11), a performance in the palace gardens at Versailles (July 13), concerts at Berlin’s Waldbühne (July 29) and the Salzburg Festival (August 2 & 3), and an eight-day residency from July 20 to 27 at the BBC Proms as part of the London 2012 Festival, the cultural celebrations of the Olympic Games.
