Trying to help bring harmony through music

A food for thought, regarding the West-Eastern Divan orchestra led by Daniel Barenboim. As the recent review on New Yorker by Alex Ross of their Carnegie Hall concert points out, there are praises and criticism from all angles (not just Israeli and Palestinians, but also from music critic's and socio-cultural observer's points of view). However, as Barenboim pointed out in an interview elsewhere, "Do you have something better?" rings quite true.
