Summary:
This three-part documentary accompanies outstanding artist Daniel Barenboim on his quest for music's social meaning. He, who was nominated for the title of "Messenger of Peace" has organised. This documentary features Daniel Barenboim conducting a spectacular concert in Gaza in May 2011. He worked 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. The third part focuses on Richard Wagner in reference to his taboo in Israel.
