Movie Reviews

This is a very inspiring DVD!
S. Andersen | Des Plaines, IL | 06/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a well done, honest commentary on Barenboim and Said's wonderful idea to break down the barriers of ignorance and mistrust by creating an orchestra which combines young Israeli and Arab musicians from various countries. Barenboim, Said, Ma and several of the orchestra members talk about their experiences, all leading to the exciting concert at Ramallah, the fulfilment of much planning and assistance. Second DVD with the Ramallah concert itself is a joy with so many talented young musicians playing Beethoven, Mozart and Elgar."
Barenboim is an inspiration

"I had the pleasure to meet with the Maestro when I was in Europe many years ago. What he has done through music is simply inspirational. If we could only make music not war....."
Hope for peace
M. ARIDA | Burlington, NC | 12/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Through this project, Said and Barenboim have done something that no politicians are able to accomplish. It's an amazing story that revived the dream (despite the current bleak reality) that one day Arabs and Israeli may be able to reconcile and live in harmony."
Knowledge is the Beginning
Jacob Picheny | Berkeley, CA | 12/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent music item and political item. It shows the attitudes of young Arab and Israeli musicians about working together, and, to some extent, about the political situation they are in. The footage of Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said expressing their perspectives is very moving. We see how, over the years, this collaborative effort has developed. The second disk is largely a complete and fine performance by the youth orchestra."
