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?
