Description

Israeli Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said have been close friends for years. "Parallels and Paradoxes" is a series of discussions between the two friends about music, politics, literature and society. Barenboim and Said talk about, among other subjects, the differences between writing prose and music; the compromising politician versus the uncompromising artist; Beethoven as the ultimate sonata composer; Wagner; great teachers; and the power of culture to transcend national differences.show more
