ORCHESTRA PLAYS BEETHOVEN 9TH FROM THEIR HOMES – TOGETHER!

BELIEVE IT!

ORCHESTRA PLAYS BEETHOVEN NINTH SYMPHONY FROM THEIR HOMES – TOGETHER!


The Rotterdam Philharmonic teamed up with a Dutch healthcare provider to film the finale of Beethoven’s 9th with all the musicians playing their parts by video from their homes.

It’s an extraordinary achievement, overwhelming in the final minutes.

If ever a video deserved to go viral, this is it.

Share like crazy, please.

Isn’t that amazing? Pass it along!

  2. Wonderful! I’m sure we’ll hear more video-conferenced music coming out in the next few weeks (or months), but this is a great start.

    • And they did it WITHOUT a conductor. This isn’t an easy piece of music and for that many instruments to manage to play together in separate places are amazing. My musician friend in Arizona sent it to me and a bunch of other people. He’s the last person in my world who thinks of me as a musician, even though I more or less dropped off the musical map many years ago. I find it touching. And I LOVED that piece. I’m enormously fond of ALL Beethoven symphonies anyway, the ninth and the sixth being particular favorites.
