Next Best Thing to Being There
I discovered the digital concert hall several years ago, and now I would not be without it. My home town orchestra is the Cleveland, which I attend when possible. With the digital concert hall I am able to access a concert in the comfort of my living room whenever I wish, and now I am as familiar with the Berliners as I am with the Clevelanders. Comparisons are odious, so I will refrain from doing so. Of course recorded sound cannot compare with live presentations, but the sound of the digital concert hall is excellent, and all that one can reasonably hope for. I really appreciate the archived material, which provides an extensive catalog of classical music. If the there were one suggestion I would offer it would be to make it easier to find a specific work. Presently one must scroll through the various concerts to find the work they are looking for. (a minor issue). Thank you for offering the service, and I am especially pleased to see that you continue to add more items to the archives.
“An orchestra is like a garden...”
“You have to continuously nourish it. And sometimes you must prune it.” As Maestro Rattle relates it, at the time he didn’t understand exactly what von Karajan meant, either. It is very interesting to see and hear how a great orchestra stays great by passing along its traditions to the next generation. Every orchestra needs to understand and communicate its unique culture and character. It helps that The Berlin Philharmonic is self-governed so that every player has a stake in its success. It’s not just a job, it’s a family.
Here in Washington DC, we have the National Orchestral Institute, 100 young players (under 30), chosen out of a thousand, who come together for three weeks to prepare three concerts under superb conductors and first-chair coaches. For those three weeks, they are one of the most exciting orchestras in the world.
Amazing service. Just love it
Im watching this weeks live concert at 1pm in Florida on a Saturday afternoon. I am melting in happiness from the gorgeous music knowing that it’s coming from around the world while I’m in a comfy lounge chair in shorts and T-shirt. For 20 years I bought front row center at Symphony Hall in Boston for a series with various world class artists. The two that I enjoyed the most were Itzak Perlman and Yo Yo Ma. I saw them every year and actually was seated next to Ma on a flight. I recognized him and he was warm and delightful. The next time I saw him in person, he waved and smiled at me. Anyway, if this looks like an expensive app, I promise you that you’ll cherish the ability to be transported at the click of a button.
