CONCERT ON YOUR COMPUTER WEEK OF JULY 6-JULY 12: In the absence of our live performances we are selecting particularly enjoyable pre-recorded performances from across the world made available to us through the Internet and featuring them through our website.
One positive result of the current pandemic situation is that some of the best symphony orchestras in the world are currently making video recordings available for viewers free of charge, sometimes only for a VERY limited time. This week's featured concert will only be available for viewing here in the United States from right now through Friday (tomorrow!) evening, but it can be viewed at your convenience. Click here or on the picture above to go to the website for the concert.
The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, a remarkable London-based chamber orchestra, has existed since 1959 and earned many international recognitions for excellence. It was the first – and to date, only – orchestra to be awarded The Queen's Award for Export Achievement.
This concert, filmed live at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre on 12 November 2019, is streaming for free from 7pm (please note that this is UK time) on Sunday 28 June, until 7pm (UK time) on Saturday 11 July. The program will include:
Mozart Symphony No.25
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E Minor
Sally Beamish ‘Hover’
Beethoven Symphony No.5
