Beethoven at it's best, 18 Dec. 2012
I first heard the East Western Divan orchestra (made up of young amateur musicians from the Middle East (Arab & Israel) under the direction of one of it's founders - Daniel Barenboim on a DVD of the 2012 BBC Proms, where they performed all 9 symphonies. I then knew that I had to have the CDs. What a pleasant surprise to find them on Amazon a a very special price. The performances by this young orchestra are superlative and the CD set has become a treasured possession. I thoroughly recommend these recordings to anyone!
