Helsinki Art Museum HAM invites you into the heart of the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.
Find out what it feels like to be inside one of the world’s greatest orchestras. As you turn your head, the 3D audio and video allow you to fully experience the nuances of each instrumental section, with sound so detailed you will even hear the score pages turning!
Be transported onto the platform in the centre of the orchestra as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, conducts a performance of Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony.
This 360-degree experience brings you closer to the inner workings of a symphony orchestra than ever before. No matter your age, whether you are a seasoned concertgoer or entirely new to classical music, be sure to find yourself standing in awe!
As Esa-Pekka Salonen, Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor of the Philharmonia Orchestra said: “The incredible power of virtual reality is that it is disappointing to leave it – to come back to reality. There is no doubt that for classical music virtual reality will be a very powerful, useful medium, and I am very excited to be taking part in this project.”
