The opening part of On Air’s 2021 Classical Series saw Johannes Vogel and the Synchron Stage Orchestra’s performing Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E minor.
That full performance is now available to watch now On Demand in 4K UHD and Dolby Atmos.
Captured in Vienna’s state-of-the-art Synchron Stage recording facility, and performed by the 60-piece Synchron Stage Orchestra (40 strings, 9 woodwind, 9 brass, 2 percussion), Brahms' 4th and final symphony pulses with positive energy and swirls with trance-like melodies that serve to carry away sorrows and reminds us of the power of positivity.
The 2021 Classical Series also saw performances of Antonin Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor (available to watch On Demand here) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 in C major (Jupiter Symphony) (available to watch On Demand here).
Speaking about the performances, Johannes Vogel said: “These symphonies are linked as they are the last and most famous symphonies written by their composers. They also each ring with hope, which is exactly what we need in the ongoing crisis. I have chosen these symphonies as they each show us the remarkable capabilities of the human mind; what we can achieve through our creativity and positivity to make the world a better place to live in. There are always ways to shape how we live despite our circumstances, and music has the power to provide the light, clarity, and insight that is needed to help us move forward.”
