The Edward W. Said London Lecture 2015

Daniel Barenboim

In his 2015 Edward W. Said London lecture at the Southbank Centre, Daniel Barenboim calls for ‘music once more to be taught in schools on a par with literature, mathematics or biology’. Music forces us to listen to contrapuntal voices – a practice Barenboim places on a par with the democratic right to vote.

In the Q&A, Barenboim is joined by Jacqueline Rose to address his own development as a musician, his views on the Israel-Palestine conflict and the BDS movement, and the success of the West-Eastern Divan orchestra.
