Hong Kong's own orchestral flash mob. Hong Kong Philharmonic playing Boléro



In a busy city like Hong Kong, when and where can classical music be heard? The answer is almost anytime, anywhere.

The Hong Kong Philharmonic, the flagship orchestra in the city and one of Asia's leading orchestras, believes that classical music should be accessible to all. So at its 2012/13 Season Launch on 15 May 2012, the orchestra staged a surprise visit for the large crowd gathered, unexpected. The result of the flash mob performance of Ravel's Boléro? Sheer joy.

Conductor: Johannes Wildner

I beg to differ somewhat; you see, a choice of music is due to personal
preference; which admittedly is too, influenced by your lifestyle.

No shit it's my opinion, duh. As much as I love new music I know that 300
years from now Mozart will still be heard, unlike most of what is popular
today. That's a fact.

It's not a subjective thing. 300 years from now this music will still live
on, that is why it is called CLASSICAL music. While anything hip hop today
will be forgotten in less than 15 years.

"no flash mob feeling"? qué sos, crítico de arte ahora, salamín? Hay
músicos que disfrutan regalando su trabajo al público, poniendo un poco de
alegría gratis en el mundo, y vos, sentadito frente a tu pantalla te ponés
a medir si tiene "feeling". Callate y escuchá, te haría bien.

agree, im hiphop fan but at the same time...classical is classical ,
magnifitoooo!~

Author Harry Hagan (2 years)
Sadly, I don't think you are. Nonetheless, it should surely be tried.
Classical music, like almost everything, is about IQ, in one way or the
other. This music, like jazz, appeals to only ca. 2 or 3% of the benighted
population. Imagine the 3rd movement of the Bruckner 8th at Centennial! If
that wouldn't get them, nothing would, or could!

Author Charles Fung (1 year)
Love this,,,

Author sffilk (2 years)
There are several other examples here on youtube, like the Bolero flash mob
in Copenhagen. That said, I agree - it'll never happen here in Atlanta. It
could happen at Centennial Olympic Park, but there aren't that many people
here in Atlanta who I think would appreciate it. I hope I'm wrong.

Author Incog2k6 (1 year)
Sorry, but that's a bunch of nonsense. I'm a huge fan of Classical
(Schubert, Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, Rachmaninoff, Liszt etc.), as well as
Jazz and Fusion (Davis, Coltrane, Montgomery, Parker, Weather Report, Al di
Meola, Chick Corea, Ritenour etc.). However, I'm humble enough to admit
that I'm NOT a very intelligent person. I'm barely above average. How
pretentious to assume that only Mensans love complex music. Oh, and btw, I
also love simpler music like Pop, Rock, Funk or Blues, so there.

I disagree with both of you. For someone to be touched by words, they need
to first understand the words, and then that understanding touches their
heart. Music bypasses that, and goes directly to the heart. IQ and
understanding, I.E. Intelligence plays little part in music touching
someones heart. Music touches your heart directly, no matter your
intelligence or education,

Author lawrenceisalive (1 year)
fantastic and a great tune.

No offence, but a little bit too rush...

Author Harry Hagan (2 years)
What a fine concept! It's nice, though, to take it to folks with already
high IQs. I'm thinking downtown Atlanta, e.g., might not be a good
placement. Maybe a group will try it. They'd better know where there cases
are, I think.

advantage of the place's acoustics by placing people and instruments in
