Daniel Barenboim

I haven't had a chance to listen to/read these yet, but my friend Robin recommended I post Daniel Barenboim's 2006 Reith lectures. So here they are.

For any of you who have no idea who Barenboim is, he's a classical pianist and composer who has been working towards peace in Palestine/Israel for many years. He regularly holds concerts in Ramallah and worked a lot with Edward Said when he was still alive. He caused rather storm in Israel when he played Wagner there a few years back. Anyone know any other 'democratic' countries that ban any classical music pieces/composers?

So anyway, enjoy... :)
