Daniel Barenboim conducts the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in the second concert of their five-part Beethoven symphony cycle, one of the highlights of this year's Proms season. Founded in 1999 with the aim of bringing together Arab and Israeli players, WEDO has gone far beyond the symbolic in its goal of building bridges through music, to become one of the world's most dynamic orchestras. Tonight, the Third and Fourth symphonies, alongside Pierre Boulez's playful work of 1984.
