Ravel’s Bolero: ALive

🇫🇷 Ageless melodies live in any epoch, even in the one of self-isolation.

L’Orchestre national de France selected Bolero for the virtual experience. It is a perfect choice in order to demonstrate how individual contribution of each person flows into a stream of a great orchestra.

It’s also a nice visualisation of the author’s vision of how it should be played. Sequence and patterns, volume and structure, all in front of your eyes. And I have a question for you. At which moment did you catch goosebumps? Me personally, when the bassoon comes into play.
