The Orchestra

Review Excerpt: Dissect the inner workings of a working symphonic orchestra, with this well crafted, immersive musical experience. Content includes eight carefully documented performances by the England-based Philharmonia Orchestra (http://www.philharmonia.co.uk). To make the app, cameras were placed throughout the orchestra during each performance, and key members of the orchestra were interviewed, so you can hear their thoughts about each part of each song, in real time, as it is played. In addition, as the music plays, you can watch the score scroll by. The app contains performances of a sampling of classics designed to show off the diversity of an orchestra. These include Haydn: Symphony No., Beethoven: Symphony No. 5, Debussy: Prélude à l’après midi d’un faune, Mahler: Symphony No. 6, Stravinsky: The Firebird.
