Presenter

One of the strongest advocates for finding a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is Daniel Barenboim, one of the modern world’s pre-eminent musicians.

The conductor and pianist spent lockdown recording Beethoven’s sonatas to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the great composer’s birth this week.

But for the last 20 years he has worked with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra bringing together musicians from Israel, the Palestinian territories and Arab countries.
