In light of yesterday's Google orchestra post, I couldn't resist this equally creative classical music story I came across today. The Hamburg State Orchestra conducted a unique performance on Monday. The musicians left their usual stage and were dispersed in 50 locations around the city-from the town hall to the tennis stadium to the docks. The conductor was perched on the tower of St. Michael's Church, where she had a view of her performers, arranged as they would be on stage, only much further apart. The musicians themselves were connected by a live video feed. This being Hamburg, they played Brahms. Watch this teaser video; it's incredible.
