The Philharmonia Orchestra filmed a rather wonderful, physically distanced concert featuring Saint-Saëns' First Cello Concerto with Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. Two more such concerts are coming down the pike.

Available Now: SF Symphony’s New Digital Series CURRENTS

A symphony orchestra is the center of the community in which it sits, a place where all the musical currents of a city come together. As these currents move forward and change, we discover and change with them. What does moving forward sound like?

The San Francisco Symphony presents CURRENTS, a new four-part video and podcast series, which shares the music and stories of Bay Area communities by highlighting classical music’s evolving relationship with vital influences and influencers. Curated and hosted by conductor Michael Morgan, in collaboration with musicians of the San Francisco Symphony, CURRENTS matches bespoke performances and candid, personal reflections by members of the Symphony and local musicians, personalities, and creators to reflect a synergy of perspectives. Curious patrons are encouraged to continue the cultural dialogue through CURRENTS Explore & Create, a series of video conversations and activities curated and hosted by conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser.

Episode 1 is available now. CURRENTS: Enter the Pipa explores the dynamic role of Chinese musical culture in the Bay Area landscape, in performances of music by composer Bright Sheng with pipa virtuoso Shenshen Zhang and members of the SF Symphony. Future episodes, to be released every two weeks, will explore Jazz, Mexican, and Hip Hop cultures.

The first episode, Enter the Pipa, is quite professional in its presentation - recommended!

This was, indeed, quite professional in its presentation. What an interesting series. Kudos to the San Francisco Symphony. Thank you for the recommendation, pherank!

Many free videos of the quarantine period are cobbled together and never really intended for public release, so it's kind of shocking how slick this presentation is.  😉
Fortunately the audio is excellent. I'm looking forward to the next episode (scheduled for August 6th).

This NYT article describes some recent in-person performances in the time of Covid-19:

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/21/arts/music/classical-music-jack-quartet.html

"BARONE Thursday’s concert was still something of a substitute. We were seated in lawn chairs within socially distanced, spray-painted squares on top of a parking structure, with the JACK players — Christopher Otto and Austin Wulliman, violins; John Pickford Richards, viola; Jay Campbell, cello — performing, amplified, from a platform in front. Yet there was the thrill of live music-making, and also what I’ve missed just as dearly: people. Sure, there were distracting sounds from audience members fumbling with their snacks. A man nearby was straight up reading The New York Times instead of watching. But the novelty of company made me giddy, even when someone’s cellphone went off during the opening remarks. It was familiar; we were together."

I know it's just me, but I actually don't miss "audience members fumbling with their snacks" and cellphones going off during a performance.

Seemingly designed for Balanchine fans, the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra plays Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.

And Ravel's Tzigane, with violinist Niek Baar. 

Plus Dvořák's Romance in F.
