A classical flash mob in the Copenhagen Metro


According to the YouTube caption,

In April 2012 Copenhagen Phil (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) surprised the passengers in the Copenhagen Metro by playing Griegs Peer Gynt. The flash mob was created in collaboration with Radio Klassisk. All music was performed and recorded in the metro.

      Train noise is often above 85db, at least in San Francisco. But “recorded in metro” does not necessarily mean “live recorded”… would make sense to do a few takes in a quiet station or car, then synch to the actual performance footage.

      (Thanks for the video, John… I especially like the reaction shots of younger and older folks in this one.)

        … sort of off-topic addenda, but have your kids listened to the Swingle Sisters doing Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3…?

    Thanks for the nice start to my day, John. Yeah.
