Brief History of this project
Once upon a time there was a violist …
It might actually seem like the beginning of a joke, but it really went like this…once there was a quarantined violist from COVID-19!
The violist begins to wonder how music could go on in these conditions; and in these conditions he thinks of an idea to let the music start again while the whole world is waiting. He thinks big, thinks about a crazy thing and finds out that he doesn’t know how to do it.
It happens then that the “creative violist in quarantine” decides to call his friend, an “eclectic sound engineer”, the typical genius who knows a little about everything and bothers about anything.
Maybe because of alchemy, maybe because of shared madness, the fact is that the eclectic friend surprises him with “it can be done, but it must be something that nobody would do, a huge thing!”.
Great! And who could manage to direct this huge thing?
The violist, a little worried in that situation, then involved his orchestra conductor friend who, spurred on by a lively curiosity and a great spirit of collaboration, immediately puts himself into the melee.
Here’s the good point: producing a piece of classical music, in particular the Overture of the Magic Flute by W. A. Mozart K620, not Ed Sheeran …
And here comes the crazy part: to have it played by 1000 musicians from all over the world.
Let’s do the math: 220 Violins I, 180 Violins II, 140 Violas, 110 Cellos, 30 Double Basses, 20 Flutes I, 20 Flutes II, 20 Oboe I, 20 Oboe II, 20 Clarinets I, 20 Clarinets II, 20 Bassoons I, 20 Bassoons II, 20 Horns I, 20 Horns II, 20 Trumpets I (Clarini), 20 Trumpets II (Clarini), 20 Alto Trombones, 20 Tenor Trombones, 20 Bass Trombones, 20 Timpani.
And here is the result: the world’s largest online symphony orchestra!
