    Just a reminder for those who want to view and listen to some good concerts for free.
    GSOplay ie The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra has got some very nice videos up. Just log onto GSO play.
    Verdi's Requiem may not count as popular classical for everyone.
    But imho it is a good performance worth seeing or just listening to.

    Cheers Christer

    Thanks Christer for reminding us about https://www.gso.se/en/gsoplay/

    I have selected a few pieces, again as you say - they are not really on the popular side of the street.

    A nice relaxing section starts at 9' in (24' in total)

    Note: Available until 10 December 2017 ( only a few days left)

    Ravel Piano Concerto in G Major - Hélène Grimaud piano


    “A shimmering and luminous reading of Ravel’s G Major Concerto”. Hélène Grimaud starts off magnificently as Artist in Residence of the Gothenburg Symphony 2017-2018.

    The critic Magnus Haglund of Göteborgs-Posten was quite impressed by the performance: “An extremely convincing reading of Ravel’s G Major concerto.” An inventive and colourful concerto from 1931, influenced by jazz rhythms, George Gershwin, Stravinsky and Basque folk music blended with softer, more mystical passages and a presto finale that’s not for the faint hearted. Qualities that Hélène Grimaud expresses with elegance, clarity and dexterity.

    Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.1 - Nicola Benedetti Violin (40')

    Note: Available until 30 December 2017


    “It was thrilling to hear and watch Nicola Benedetti in a truly risk-taking performance that lived so much in the body and fused the sinews of the violin and the nerve-system of the player.” (Hilary Finch, The Times.)

    Risk-taking and curiosity characterise British violinist Nicola Benedetti, born in Scotland with roots in Italy. She is just as happy to play Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons as she is to play a new piece by Turnage or a commissioned work by jazz trumpet player Wynton Marsalis. She also plays the big violin concertos with the finest performers, such as Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev on Trafalgar Square. Enjoy the very same concerto recorded live in Gothenburg with conductor Thomas Søndergaard.
