Enjoy our virtual reality footage from the LSO String Ensemble, performing Shostakovich Chamber Symphony in C minor, led by Roman Simovic filmed inside the spectacular Barbican Hall. This has been filmed in co-production with WeMakeVR.com - “It was a long desired wish to film in London with the London Symphony Orchestra. Their musicians are between the best of the world and to be welcomed in their midst with such friendliness and openness was wonderful. They let us film them right in the heart of their orchestra, on stage. It is great to sit in the audience and see them perform, but to be so closely surrounded by them is pure magic.
We want to develop new musical experiences with LSO. Opening the wonders of music to more people and to those who are not in the opportunity to go see them. Or who just want to see it again. And again.”
