Following the success of its inaugural classical music event of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony last December, the streaming platform On Air is returning to the classical stage to stream the final symphonies of Brahms, Dvořák and Mozart from Vienna’s Synchron Stage, in a series of concerts running from May to September.

Austrian conductor Johannes Vogel will once more conduct the Synchron Stage Orchestra for the following events: Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E minor on 21, 22, and 23 May at 7pm UK time, featuring 60 musicians; Antonin Dvořak’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor (New World Symphony) on 18, 19 and 20 June at 7pm UK time, assembling 60 musicians; and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 in C major (Jupiter Symphony) on 10, 11 and 12 September at 7pm UK time, performed by 40 musicians.

The symphonies were chosen as they are what we need this year, each reminding us that there is great cause for hope in our hard times. Brahms’ 4th pulses with a positive energy that reminds us of the power of positivity; Dvořák’s New World Symphony fizzes with joy, and is uplifting throughout; and Mozart’s 41st Symphony is one of the most complex and exciting compositions ever made, representing the possibilities of mankind.

Please note that the cycle of performances at The Synchron Stage will be handled in a safe, Covid-secure way. More info on On Air’s website here.
