Daniel Barenboim has helmed many of the finest orchestras in the world, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris, and the orchestras of La Scala and the Berlin State Opera. However, the most impressive group of musicians he has directed might be the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, an organization he co-founded with famed intellectual Edward Said in 1999. Composed of young, talented musicians from Israel, Palestine and other Arab countries, the orchestra offers a rare opportunity for Israelis and Arabs to work together in harmony (literally).

In July, they caused a sensation after performing Beethoven's entire symphonic cycle during The Proms in London.
