The gigging band scene is becoming renowned for overdocumenting itself, with seemingly hardly a gig goes by without two or three people filming, some of them probably on behalf of performers.
Classical music is a different matter, at any level below the Proms at any rate. Very little audible, let alone visible, record survives of most of my orchestral, chamber or otherwise classical work, except demo recordings for work purposes. So it was a nice surprise to come across this, of which I was completely unaware:
I’m leading the orchestra (hence my unabashed appropriation of the recording), and it’s the overture in all but name from Hashtag Opera‘s performance of Verdi’s Giovanna d’Arco last year. Enjoy!
