Up yours! Czech Phil puts mini-cams on its musicians

Just like the bad old days when the StB watched everything, the Czechs have reverted to close observation.

During a performance of Richard Strauss’s Tod und Verklärung in Prague’s Rudolfinum, 24 GoPro cameras were fixed to the musicians and the conductor, Manfred Honeck.

For what purpose?

  • Perhaps just only to control uniqe fingering, bowing,vibrato and breath as it was during Vaclav Talich time and to remember time before the Velvet Revolution 25 years ago.

  • What fun! Now that’s a possible way to get young people interested in orchestras: use current and hip technological devices (in this case, GoPro cameras) to give them an inside look at the musicians in the orchestra.
