Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
The BBC has gone following the players into downtown areas where drinkers have never heard a classical concert. Watch here.
Very like the OAE’s Night Shift here in the UK…
Or even more like the OAE’s pub tour in 2012.
Hugely overdue. Kudos to the colleagues at Severance Hall – and congratulations to their newly fortunate neighbours!
If we believe in the music, we have to believe that this will work but not everywhere. There are rural places that would not tolerate the musician even coming through the door. I know, I live in such a place and yet, I must have this music and art so I try to bring it in every chance I get just on the chance that maybe one or two people will take the chance.
