On the occasion of the „Festival de Música y Reflexión” at the Teatro Colón, Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra celebrate the centennials of two extraordinary Argentinian musicians: Alberto Ginastera, eminent creator of modern classical music interfused with folkloristic elements, and Horatio Salgán, whose voice was distinctive in the development of Argentine tango during the 20th century.

Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra presentGinastera’s Violin Concerto as well as three Tango compositions by Salgánwith “solidity and agility”. (La Nación)

“Michael Barenboim makes it all sound easy, though, with performances spilling over with life and drama. Every work’s soul has been ignited and revealed, every second telling a story, all unmarred by a single glitch in intonation or articulation [...] this is indisputably exciting playing across an indisputably effective programme.” (Gramophone)

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is not only an internationally-acclaimed touring orchestra but also a symbol of tolerance and understanding between people.
