Musical Chain – from orchestra to band, from conductor to producer
In July 2020 Kristjan Järvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic launched a major new online project, ‘Musical Chain’, with the goal of taking the virtual orchestral idea in a completely fresh direction, while continuing to bring together musicians and other artists in a spirit of international collaboration. The project opened with the ‘Rewritten Series’, an ongoing series of strikingly original music videos featuring transformations and remixes of iconic classical pieces. ‘Musical Chain’ will continue with more ideas and projects that showcase how the Baltic Sea Philharmonic is taking the concept of an orchestra further – from orchestra to band to producer. Watch more ‘Musiscal Chain’ videos here.
