This is, I feel, a remarkable feat of musicianship in which 10,000 musicians (supposedly--I did not count) came together to perform Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
I don't recall Beethoven writing it for quite so many voices, and to some, it may be over the top, but just knowing the issues with sound delay and the logistics that go into making a production like this happen, I feel this is a remarkable feat. For starters, how did anyone in the upper decks even see the conductor?
Does anyone know of any other unique and/or creative performances that may shed new light on musicianship, or like this one, are simply impressive to behold even if they are relatively "standard" takes?
