Established in 1999 as a workshop for young musicians from Israel, Palestine, and other Arab countries, the group is celebrated for its interpretations of Beethoven, which exude "youthful gusto and enthusiasm" (The Independent, London). On this program, they perform Beethoven's symphonies nos. 2 and 9.</span></p><p> Tue, 05 Feb 2013 17:00:00 +0000 22599 at http://redriverradio.org Carnegie Hall Live: West-Eastern Divan Orchestra
