In locked-down Israel, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik connects musicians at homemain
In Israel, with one of the toughest stay-home regimes on earth, the Jerusalem Street Orchestra asked its friends, young and old, to get out their instruments and play Mozart.
The result is absolutely heartlifting. You see it here first:

And here’s another distanced performance from the same place:
They didn’t choose Mozart’s Coronation Mass for obvious reasons.
which programme did they use??
The best so far – now go for Mahler!
Outstanding – what the imagination and thinking outside a box can do!
So do we need expensive concert halls (the box) if it is possible outside the box?
Fabulous wonderful uplifting makes me smile. Keep it coming
I’m rather fond of the player in a birthday hat!
To say something crazy, which I’ve been quite abundant in lately.
You experience a miracle and the left brain just doesn’t have the hold it used to have on sanity, I even piped myself up with enough coffee to turn it off a bit, quite severely at times, but anyhow. I’ll find better means now. I was simply at a loss to.
What I understand, which is completely out of bounds, and fortunately stays there beyond “objectivity,” is that this piece was written, exactly to cheer someone up.
Mozart’s mother had died some nine years earlier, and Wolfgang didn’t understand his father anymore, why he was so critical of him. His mother, being a spirit, appeared to him in the fireplace, something she could do without the consequent damage being in there would evoke was she not a spirit, and simply said to her son: “Leopold loves you, he’s just a silly man.”
And Wolfgang sat down to write a little night music. A diversion that cheered him up.
Make of it what you will….
This is wonderful and amazing!
Beautiful and inspiring to see our young people rising to the crisis. I thank G-d for that!
Yoffe! Todah Rabah!
Fabulous -and as a former flute player, I always thought conductors were superfluous
Beautiful! What a sharing. You underscore the fact that the world CAN share and unite over common appreciations. Thank you so much.

As we all deal with our own varied emotions at this time, may music continue to provide us respite. ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡
