Desde Edward W. Said falleció en 2003, cada año se celebran en Berlín, organizadas por la Barenboim-Said Akademie y la Pierre Boulez Saal, unas jornadas dedicadas a mantener vivo su recuerdo y sobre todo su mensaje. La presente edición se celebrará entre el 14 y el 16 de marzo en la Pierre Boulez Saal y consistirá en una serie de conferencias, encuentros, y dos conciertos protagonizados por los Tallis Scholars y un grupo de alumnos de la Academia Barenboim-Said. Este año el tema sobre el que girarán las jornadas es el de 'el contrapunto' en su aspecto musical, filosófico, sociológico, literario, etc., ya que la idea de "la combinación de dos o más voces musicales que son armónicamente dependientes pero mantienen su independencia melódica y rítmica, es una metáfora fundamental para describir las complejidades de la vida y el exilio". 

Nota de prensa acerca de los 'Edward W. Said Days, 2019'

With the annual Edward W. Said Days, the Barenboim-Said Akademie and the Pierre Boulez Saal honor the late Palestinian literary scholar who died in 2003 and together with Daniel Barenboim created the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. Said, who was also a critic, musician, and political activist, is considered one of the founders of the academic field of postcolonial studies.  

The 2019 Edward W. Said Days will focus on the concept of counterpoint and its musical, literary, and sociological aspects. Music was central to Said’s work as a scholar, and he used it as a way to describe the non-musical. For him, counterpoint – the combination of two or more musical voices that are harmonically interdependent, yet melodically and rhythmically independent – was a fundamental metaphor for describing the complexities of life and exile.  

Join the Barenboim-Said Akademie in its interwoven exploration of counterpoint through lecture, concert, and discussion, curated by the Dean of the Akademie, Prof. Dr. Mena Mark Hanna. Among the guests are literary and cultural critic Michael Wood, friend of the late Edward Said, author Adania Shibli, photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi and filmmaker Mahdi Fleifel. In musical terms, the exploration of counterpoint will find its expression in concerts of the acclaimed Tallis Scholars, performing works with up to 40 parts, and a concert of the students of the Barenboim-Said Akademie.
