Cologne cathedral opened its venerable doors for an overwhelming audio experience on 18 May 2017. The WDR Symphony Orchestra, led by Jukka-Pekka Saraste, proudly presented Hector Berlioz’ “Grande Messe des Morts”, Requiem for tenor, mixed choir and orchestra op. 5. The perfect presentation of voices, such as tenor Andrew Staples, the Czech Philharmonic Choir Brno, and the WDR Radio Choir Cologne, impressed the music connoisseurs in attendance and a host of others too. In cooperation with our Euro Media Group affiliates DBVideo, nobeo organised the live broadcast on WDR 3 and the live stream on ARTE Concert. The programme was also recorded for broadcast on 3sat and is due to be rerun by WDR Fernsehen on 26 November 2017.
Our @-car experienced even more musical highlights at the Philharmonic Concert Hall in Cologne and Dortmund Concert Hall. On behalf of Bernhard Fleischer Moving Image Streaming, our mobile web expertise was deployed for the live stream of classical programmes on YouTube on three dates in spring. The programmes included Daniil Trifonov with Chopin’s piano concertos, two performances by the Gürzenich Orchestra, including pieces by Britten, Chin, Debussy, and Ravel, and an additional concert with compositions by Bloch, Prokofjew and Tschaikowsky.
