Regev to Merkel: Don’t let pianist Daniel Barenboim play in Iran

Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev demanded on Wednesday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel cancel talks of a possible performance in Tehran staged by the Berlin Philharmonic and its musical director, the world renowned pianist Daniel Barenboim.

Barenboim, the Argentinian-born Israeli, has earned a reputation in recent years as one of the harshest critics of government policies in the territories.

European news outlets are reporting that the Berlin Philharmonic and the Iranian government are in talks about a possible concert which would take place in Tehran.
