“The public – explain the tenics – will be able to experience this innovative modality firsthand on the occasion of ten concerts, scheduled from next June until March 2023 at Verdi Room of the Milan Conservatory. During the live performance, spectators in the hall will be able to use a tablet (made available by the Foundation) to observe the musicians directly from their seat, thanks to four cameras positioned in the room. By sliding your finger on the tablet screen it will be possible to choose the point of view of one or more cameras to see closely, for example, the face of the conductor, the hand of the first violin, the movements of the fingers on the piano keyboard, the looks of complicity among the orchestral players “.
The first date with Swipe Your Stage! is for Monday 1st June at 8.45 pm, with the concert of the pianist Jeffrey Swann.
