Symphony No. 4 in B Flat Major by Ludwig van Beethoven
Interlude I and Interlude II by Jesse Passenier
An ultimate sensory experience, take in Beethoven’s Fourth by having your entire body resonate with the sound
Technology is everywhere. Even in a symphony orchestra. Together with tech company CREW and sound artist Christoph De Boeck the South Netherlands Philharmonic collaborated to create a new spacial and bodily experience for Symphony No. 4 in B Flat Major by Ludwig van Beethoven. To keep the experience ongoing, new connecting compositions, Interlude I & II, were written by Jesse Passenier, to link between the movements of Beethoven’s Symphony. Disruption, enrichment, and addaptation were key principles in this technological experiment. The production was led by the energetic, expressive, and precise conductor Kristiina Poska.
