Double World Premiere in Nuremberg
Two world premieres in one night awaited the over 2000 visitors to the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra’s recent subscription concert in the Meistersingerhalle. Opening the programme was Willi Vogl’s “Symphonie für ein visuell bewegtes Orchester”, a work for orchestra and images which celebrates the creation of the Mp3 thirty years ago this year. Just like the composer, who comes from Nuremberg, the technology behind the Mp3 was developed in the region of Frankonia - a fact which this Nuremberg Symphony commission sought to highlight. In the same concert the audience was treated to the World’s first real-time “Music Animation Machine” performance accompanying the second movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. Conceived by Stephen Malinowski (who has had over 100,000,000 views of his animations on youtube) in collaboration with Etienne Abelin, this project was the culmination of several years of development.
