520    This fascinating exchange between Daniel Barenboim, Music 
       Director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the 
       Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, and Edward W. Said, the 
       leading expert on the Middle East, grew out of the 
       acclaimed Carnegie Hall Talks. A unique and impassioned 
       discussion about politics and culture, it touches on many 
       diverse subjects: the importance of a sense of place; the 
       differences between writing prose and music; the 
       conductors Wilhelm Furtwangler and Arturo Toscanini; 
       Beethoven as the greatest sonata composer; the difficulty 
       of playing Wagner; the sound at Bayreuth; the writers 
       Balzac, Dickens, and Adorno; the importance of great 
       teachers; and the power of culture to transcend all 
       national and political differences--something they both 
       witnessed when they brought together young Arab and 
       Israeli musicians to play at Weimar in 1999. Although 
       Barenboim and Said have very different points of view, 
       they act as catalysts for each other. The originality of 
       their ideas makes this a book that is both accessible and 
       compelling for anyone who is interested in the culture of 
       the twenty-first century.
