27 muusikkoa, 1 Orkesteri, 1 Eurooppa

Ranskan EU:n neuvoston puheenjohtajuuden kunniaksi Ranskan instituutti Suomessa on kutsunut nuoria eurooppalaisia muusikoita digitaaliseen konserttiin.

Robert Schuman sanoi: « Euroopan tulee olla ennen kaikkea paras mahdollinen kulttuurinen yhteisö sotilasliiton ja taloudellisen entiteetin lisäksi.»
Näitä viisaita sanoja kunnioittaen, Ranskan instituutti Suomessa on perustanut PFUE Digital Orchestran juhliaakseen Ranskan EU:n neuvoston puheenjohtajuutta.
Tällä videolla 27 musiikkoa 27 EU-maasta yhdistävät lahjakkuutensa soittaakseen Camille Saint-Saënsin Carnaval des Animaux’n Finalen.

Bonuksena katsoja voi katsoa jokaista soitinta erikseen ymmärtäkseen kuinka kappale on rakennettu.

Katso tämä kiehtova kokonaisuus!
