Barenboim-Said Foundation

The Barenboim-Said Andalusian Public Foundation was created in July 2004, when Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said accepted the proposal of the Regional Government of Andalusia to establish the Foundation and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in Seville. This started a fascinating project, which would develop into an international model for intercultural understanding.

One of the principles inspiring the Foundation is that music cannot be isolated from society. Based on this premise, the main objective of the Barenboim-Said

Foundation is to integrate music into the fabric of society. For Daniel Barenboim “it is essential to make people aware of the need for music education as an organic element of culture”.

Therefore, the Foundation develops several educational and cultural projects which aim to promote humanistic values through the universal language of music. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, the Academy of Orchestral Studies or the Music Education programs in both Palestine and Andalusia, are only a few of the successful initiatives carried out by the Foundation.


What moves us?


We love classical music. Therefore, one of the inspiring principles of our Foundation is the integration of music in the society.


We believe in the value of classical music as an educational tool that helps children, and also adults, to recognize, express and socialize.


We promote cultural exchanges, as well as a spirit of peace, dialogue and conciliation between people through music.


We have a big commitment to society by promoting projects and development cooperation projects.
