2 minutos de lectura

The Symphony project employs virtual reality (VR) technology to offer spectators a chance to experience and enjoy classical music as they have never done before, inviting them to feel like one of the musicians in the orchestra.

Under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel and accompanied by the more than one hundred musicians that make up the internationally acclaimed Mahler Chamber Orchestra, audiences will have the opportunity to hear music in a way they have previously never been able to, and even travel through the interior of the instruments.

The premiere of the two films that comprise this itinerant project - written and directed by Igor Cortadellas - will take place at CosmoCaixa, where they can be seen up to 8 October before beginning a tour which will last ten years and take in around a hundred towns and cities in Spain and Portugal.

The main feature of this emotional journey guided by the celebrated Venezuelan conductor will be compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven, for whom 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of his birth, as well as Gustav Mahler and Leonard Bernstein.

“With this extraordinary and captivating experience we want to contribute to disseminating classical music and make it available to the wider public, in a journey without precedent to the heart of the human soul”, said the deputy general director of the ”la Caixa” Foundation, Elisa Durán.
