Moving and significant,
This review is from: Barenboim: West-Eastern Divan- Live from the Alhambra, Granada (DVD)It is so moving to see Israeli and Palestinian, Syrian, Egyptian musicians playing side by side at the same music stand. This is perhaps the only way in which they can interact, as even phone calls are forbidden between the countries. The music-making is glorious, and the amazing friendship between Barenboim and the late Edward Said is beautifully displayed. But why Oh why has this deeply important documentary apparently been deleted. Barenboim has created a glorious opportunity to make music pave the way for peace between these nations, this should be distributed as widely as possible.

Assuming this is actually the Canadian pianist writing here, all I can say is, having heard a number of his recordings, that his tenuous wisdom here reminds me of his playing.
