IT was a rare opportunity to see the world’s most famous conductor at work.
Daniel Barenboim brought his celebrated West Eastern Divan Orchestra to the world’s oldest bull ring in Ronda.
And he did not disappoint, undertaking two conciertos by Beethoven and one by Mozart.
His hope with this mixed Arab and Israeli orchestra is that “at the same time, at the same volume, with the same stroke of the bow, they find, yes, there is something they can do together”.
He hopes it will have a healing, harmonious effect on the Middle East and on this showing, he deserves to be right.
