Musical Chain: Beethoven’s Twilight by the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi
IN YOUR FACE… is an art form that Beethoven had mastered. If living today, Beethoven would have probably been the least likely to become a what we nowadays consider ‘classical’ composer, but the first to rock the house! ‘Beethoven’s Twilight’ is our homage to his spirit, for what he stood and still stands for, which is people and their potential for ingenuity. Above all, he stood for humanity and their potential, when unified. This remix is channelling Beethoven’s spirit from another dimension.
Musical Chain: Midnight Mood by the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi
Time to experiment: All of us are in the situation where we have to come out of our normal groove and comfort zone, our usual structures, methods and routines. Physically, we can’t produce the same energy in the same room, but we’re creating a new way to convey our energy and spirit to people around the world. What’s your new discovery?
