This three-part documentary accompanies outstanding artist Daniel Barenboim on his quest into the social meaning of music and the secrets of sound. It features him as a UN Messenger of Peace 910 tp5330leading a spectacular concert in Gaza in May 2011, working with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and conducting the Cairo Symphony Orchestra for the very first time. In addition, the programme opens up a fascinating cultural discourse by depicting Barenboim discussing Wagner, politics and music. Also featured discussing these subjects are figures, who have shaped contemporary history, among others Pierre Boulez, Joschka Fischer and Richard von Weizsäcker. In a discussion with Daniel Barenboim Edward Said once said: "It has become quite rare to project one's self outward, to have a broader perspective." Daniel Barenboim, constantly trying to find out what music can achieve and how it can inspire mankind, is certainly able to do just that. This documentary gives an insight into the social meaning of music.
