7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 2, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Daniel Barenboim, an Argentine pianist and conductor by birth who has become one of the more important artists on the international podium today, formed the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra comprised of Israeli and Arab musicians as a template for how peoples through time disparate can come together through the purity and redemption of music. If there is a path to healing the scars on this region of constant struggle, Barenboim just may be more of an ambassador of goodwill than any other person involved in the difficult negotiations.

He conducts his orchestra, which incidentally is surprisingly fine for having been formed for such a short time, in Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in a performance that is very moving, fiery, and lyrical. He then turns to Mozart's sublimely beautiful Sinfonia Concertante K 297 and the orchestra is able to reduce its big sound to an elegant chamber communication. The performance is recorded from a live evening in Ramallah but the acoustics captured by the engineers is quite good.

This recording includes the speech, or plea for understanding, that moved the audience (and moves the listener) to a higher plane of insight. Barenboim then quietly closes the concert with an exquisite performance of Elgar's 'Nimrod Variation' from his 'Enigma Variations' - and the impact of this music following this concert is palpable. This is a recording that is not only musically sound but also spiritually uplifting - and we all need to hear and experience it. Grady Harp, July 06

Inspirational music, brilliantly played, then a passionate 4 minute speach and encore that brings tears to the eyes and makes the whole recording 100 times more powerful. Everyone should listen to it!

It is so inspiring to listen to this great music and think about the harmony between those Arab and Israeli musicians. It is a glimmer of hope for a peaceful future.

The centerpiece of the show, Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, is possibly the most well-known piece of classical music in the repertoire, which the conductor plays with fire and enthusiasm. You'll find everything here you've come to expect from the Fifth Symphony and more, Barenboim pointing up the work's tense explosiveness and doing so at speeds that approach those of Fritz Reiner in his old RCA Chicago Symphony account. OK, maybe the performance lacks the ultimate electric charge of Reiner's performance or of Carlo Kleiber's DG recording, but it does come close with its involvement, its fury, its energy, and its passion. And to think that it is a youth orchestra performing at this high level and with this precision is quite remarkable.

The recording is live, so it's not quite state-of-the-art, but it does nicely.
