Salam and hello all. It has been about a week there is no new entry here. Hoho, actually I at my hometown right now, enjoying my limited-one-week holiday. Yeah, hence of course I need to appreciate that limited time. My class for special semester will start soon on 20 April 2009. Well, I took special semester a.k.a short semester again. Ok, stop talking about academic stuff, it’s holiday. Hehe.
Let’s go back to what this entry should be, do you know about this collaboration? Youtube Symphony Orchestra? Have you ever heard before? I noticed about this world’s first collaborative orchestra few days before when I was watching a video at Youtube. Anyway, I heard about it again today on tv about this collaborative orchestra. Let’s have a brief intro about this orchestra.
This collaborative orchestra is a collaboration of Youtube and London Symphony Orchestra, and consists of at least 90 musicians from 30 different countries. What more interesting is, all musicians have been selected via a vote by Youtube viewers! Sound cool, huh? And they have performed their first performance at Carnegie Hall yesterday and the video has ready to watch at Youtube.
This is the video of Tan Dun’s Internet Symphony No. 1 “Eroica” that was performed by this orchestra yesterday and was conducted by San Francisco Symphony Orchestra music director Michael Tilson-Thomas. Listen to the music, it is really nice and “classic”.
Beside Tan Dun’s Internet Symphony No. 1 “Eroica”, they also performed other classical music works by Gabrieli, Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Villa-Lobos and John Cage. So many names I never heard before, but I love to hear Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss. Sometimes these classical music help me to relax. Anyway, I think I’ll hear this Tan Dun’s Internet Symphony No. 1 “Eroica” many times after this. This music is awesome. So, what do you think?
p/s: It reminds me of Nodame Cantabile ( のだめカンタービレ ). Wanna watch it again
