The all-embracing project includes a world tour, which began in August 2010 in Buenos Aires and will span four continents by 2013, and a major recording release that features performances by the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (or WEDO) as well as the Staatskapelle Berlin, with Barenboim himself at the keyboard.
