BBC Reith Lecturer 2006 - In the beginning was sound


BBC Reith Lecturer 2006 - Daniel Barenboim

He'd given his first concert in Buenos Aires at the age of
seven, and at the age of eleven he'd been declared a phenomenon
by the legendary conductor Wilhelm Fürtwangler. His life has been
and continues to be saturated with music. A virtuoso at the piano,
he later became a supreme master of the podium. In these lectures
he'll be drawing on a lifetimeof musical experience to demonstrate
that music, as he puts it, is away to make sense of the world -
our politics, our history, ourfuture, and our very essence.
Daniel Barenboim doesn't shy fromcontroversy. He's shown himself
willing to take courageous publicstands. Six years ago he founded,
against the odds, an orchestramade up of equal numbers of Arab
and Israeli young members, theWest-Eastern Divan Orchestra,
not least to demonstrate that it'spossible through music for people
from warring factions to find peaceful co-existence.
