Barenboim's 'Divan' Concerts on the Way

Fine, lengthy piece at The Guardian awhile back on Daniel Barenboim prepping to play all 9 symphonies at The Proms in London this summer, with his famous Israeli-Arab "Divan" orchestra.  We have a good deal on Barenboim, his views on LvB and work with Edward Said, in our new Beethoven book.  He will bring the orchestra to Carnegie also doing the complete Ludwig next week, and I will, of course, be there for the 2nd and 9th symphonies.
