Since 1999, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra has brought together Arab and Israeli musicians as a means to defy fierce political divides in the Middle East and globally. Concertmaster Michael Barenboim leads the newly-formed West-Eastern Divan Ensemble, and on February 20, 2020 that fantastic group of chamber players performed the Mendelssohn Octet, live on Impromptu.

  • Rondo in A Major for Violin and Strings, D.438, by Schubert

  • Octet for Strings in E flat Major, Op. 20, Mendelssohn
    Allegro moderato ma con fuoco
    Scherzo: Allegro leggierissimo
