Abstract:

"In this powerful new book, Daniel Barenboim draws on his profound and uniquely influential engagement with music to argue for its central importance in Our everyday lives. While we may sometimes think of personal, social and political issues as existing independently of each other, Barenboim shows how music teaches that this is impossible. Drawing on his own involvement with Palestine, he examines the transformative power of music in the world, from his own performances of Wagner in Israel to his foundation, with Edward Said, of the internationally acclaimed West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. Music Quickens Time reveals how the sheer power and eloquence of music offers us a way to explore how we live, and to illuminate and resolve some of the most intractable issues of our time."--Jacket.
