Anne-Sophie Mutter, Yo-Yo Ma and Daniel Barenboim celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth by recording the Triple Concerto. The CD released last Friday by Deutsche Grammophon also includes Beethoven's Seventh Symphony with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra.
The recordings were made at concerts in Buenos Aires and Berlin – in July and October 2019 and mark two milestone anniversaries - the 20th birthday of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and the 40th anniversary of the legendary Triple Concerto recording made by Mutter and Ma under Herbert von Karajan.

In 1999, Daniel Barenboim, together with the late Palestinian literary scholar Edward Said created a workshop for young musicians from Israel, Palestine and various Arab countries of the Middle East seeking to enable intercultural dialogue and to promote the experience of collaborating on a matter of common interest. The orchestra is named after Goethe’s collection of poems entitled “West-Eastern Divan”, a central work for the evolution of the concept of world culture.
