Barenboim gives free concert for peacemain
The West-Eastern Diwan orchestra has thrown an outdoor free Vivaldi concert into its Argentine tour.
The conductor said: ‘The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is very sensitive to the situation in Middle East. The musicians have relatives on both sides, the sides that are killing each other and, despite this cruel war, there is no Arab or Israeli musician who has canceled his participation in this concert for peace. This is also a gesture to Argentina.’
