In a HARDtalk interview first broadcast on 11 February 2008, Stephen Sackur talks to the conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim.

This year the state of Israel is sixty years old.

It's a time for Israelis and Palestinians to take stock.

Daniel Barenboim moved to the new Jewish state as a child.

He went on to become one of the world's greatest musicians and a passionate advocate of Israeli-Palestinian coexistence.

He delivers his message through collaborative music-making.

But amid the din of conflict, who's really listening?

HARDtalk is broadcast on BBC World at 04:30h GMT, 09:30h GMT, 14:30h GMT, 21:30h GMT and 23:30h GMT.

Hardtalk can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 04:30h & 23:30h.
