Barenboim takes West-Eastern Divan Orchestra on its first tour of Asia

Following concerts with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in Seville and Madrid, Daniel Barenboim will lead the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in its debut concerts on the Asian continent as part of their “Beethoven for All” tour.  The first performance on August 5 will take place at the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing, China and is shortly followed by two concerts at Shanghai’s Underground Cultural Plaza Theater on August 7 and 8.  The orchestra and conductor then head to Seoul, South Korea for a four-night presentation of the complete Beethoven symphony cycle from August 10 to 14 at the Seoul Arts Center.  The next day, August 15, Barenboim will lead the WEDO in a special performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in Imjingak, South Korea, which lies near the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.  The concert, which is being held on Liberation Day in Korea, is being presented in the hopes that it will promote peace on the Korean peninsula.
