The West-Eastern Divan Ensemble is a chamber-size, groundbreaking project founded in 1999 by Edward Said, the late Palestinian American writer and musician, and Daniel Barenboim, the acclaimed Israeli conductor and pianist.
Grouping together Arab and Israeli musicians to promote peace and understanding, the ensemble crosses political, cultural and geographical boundaries while performing works by classical giants at concert venues worldwide.
