Ten years ago the influential conductor Daniel Barenboim set out to create an orchestra that would promote understanding in the Middle East.

Today, his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, made up of Arabs and Israelis, is celebrated as a ground-breaking collaboration between youths from both sides.

The orchestra is currently touring Europe to mark their tenth anniversary.

Al Jazeera's Felicity Barr spoke to Barenboim in London.
