Yesterday, around 90,000 people from across Europe enjoyed the first concert on Facebook of the Music of the Day from Europe’s Concert Halls project, that has been launched by ECHO, an association comprising the most prestigious concert halls on our continent, and in which L'Auditori is taking part.
Yesterday’s concert, with Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra at Het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, marked the start of several broadcasts that will be offered every day at 8 pm from one of the ECHO members’ concert halls and which can viewed simultaneously each day on the Facebook pages of the participating institutions.
Tomorrow, Wednesday 25 March at 8 pm, it is L’Auditori’s turn, and it will present the concert that the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra performed at the Sagrada Família in Barcelona on 20 September 2015 and which marked the début of Kazushi Ono as the orchestra’s principal conductor.
The programme for this week is as follows:
Tuesday 24: Konserthuset Stockholm | Schumann’s Symphony No. 3
Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra · Sakari Oramo
Wednesday 25: L’Auditori | Vivancos, Takemitsu and Mozart at the Sagrada Família
Barcelona Symphony Orchestra · Kazushi Ono
Thursday 26: Elbphilharmonie Hamburg | Arvo Pärt Programme
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra · Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir · Tõnu Kaljuste
Friday 27: Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Lisbon | Stravinsky’s Petrushka
Gulbenkian Orchestra · Leo Hussain
The aim of Music of the Day from Europe’s Concert Halls is to ensure that people can enjoy high-quality music from their homes for as long as the lockdown measures remain in place. Alongside L’Auditori, some of the other ECHO concert hall members participating in the simultaneous broadcasts are the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the London Barbican, Konserthuset in Stockholm, the BOZAR in Brussels, the Town Hall and Symphony Hall in Birmingham, the Müpa in Budapest, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, Sage Gateshead, the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, the Casa da Música in Oporto, the Megaron Athens, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Konzerthaus in Dortmund and the Philharmonie in Cologne.
With the ECHO Facebook concerts, L’Auditori reaffirms its local and international commitment to bring music and culture to everyone, and takes its dedication to digital formats one step further with undertakings such as this and the platform L'Auditori at home.
