Daniel Barenboim adds to his many gongs by accepting a knighthood from the British ambassador to Berlin later today. The honour has been awarded in recognition of his work towards reconciliation in the Middle East through music.
He becomes an honorary Knight Commander (KBE) - but he won't get a 'Sir' title as none of his many passports is British.
The KBE is the highest honour that can be accorded to foreign citizens.
The maestro said he was "deeply touched" by the honour.
