The music

The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is delighted to announce that it will be giving the first hologram symphony concert ever recorded. As part of the 12th edition of the artgenève fair, which will take place from 25 to 28 January 2024, 73 musicians will take virtual shape to perform the Pictures at an Exhibition by Moussorgski. This is a first for the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, which is exploring new ways of broadcasting classical music and reaching new audiences.

In collaboration with the company Cybel'Art, the Orchestra was filmed and captured from every angle: while performing the iconic piece of the classical repertoire: the majestic Pictures at an Exhibition by the composer Modest Moussorgski, in the biggest Theatre of Switzerland, the Théâtre de Beaulieu. Gestures, facial expressions, bow movements, silences - everything was captured using motion capture, a technology that can easily record the positions of the musicians and transposes them virtually. It is the first time that this extremely precise and meticulous technology and set design are used to film for a symphony orchestra. In 1954, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande was a pioneer in this field, making the very first symphonic stereophonic recording under the baton of its conductor and founder Ernest Ansermet. 70 years later, in 2024, the OSR is once again the first symphony orchestra to experiment with a new means of broadcasting.

Several performances of this first hologram symphony concert will be given as part of the artgenève fair taking place in Geneva from 25 to 28 January 2024.
