Germany is supporting Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim's efforts to bring the Berlin philharmonic (Staatskapelle) to Iran for a special performance.

Responding to a query from The Jerusalem Post, the philharmonic released a statement indicating that talks are indeed continuing between cultural officials in Germany and their counterparts in Iran about a possible performance.

"German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has taken on the patronage of this concert and supports Daniel Barenboim's commitment to make music accessible to people beyond any national, religious or ethnic boundaries," the philharmonic said.
