The concert will also be available for 90 days of free VOD (video on demand) viewing exclusively at www.medici.tv, the increasingly popular performance arts website. The deliciously varied program – including music by Rossini, Orbón, Bernstein, and Ravel – is a preview of a performance Dudamel and the orchestra will give at New York’s Carnegie Hall this October, one of several the conductor will give this season in a special relationship with the justly famous orchestra and in partnership with Rolex.
The Dudamel/Vienna Philharmonic webcast is one of several concerts that will be webcast live at www.medici.tv this fall. Highlights include the Orchestre National de Lyon under the direction of Jun Märkl in the season-opening concert of the Auditorium de Lyon (Sep 24). Additional concerts from the venue follow, including soloists of the Opéra National de Paris’s Atelier Lyrique in a program of popular songs (Oct 27); the fast-rising Pacifica Quartet performing music by Janácek, Bartók, Haydn, and Schubert (Nov 3); and, just in time for the holidays, Serge Baudo conducting the Orchestre National de Lyon in Berlioz’s luminous pastoral oratorio, L’enfance du Christ (The Childhood of Christ).
