We are deeply honoured and excited that Daniel Barenboim has agreed to become the President of the School in succession to the late Mstislav Rostropovich.  Daniel Barenboim's great work in bringing together the West Eastern Divan Orchestra which unites Israeli, Palestinian and Arab musicians has brought him worldwide attention.  His recent Reith lectures on BBC Radio 4 expounded a philosophy which echoed so many of Yehudi Menuhin's own thoughts.
