The Montréal Symphony Orchestra announced yesterday that they will be broadcasting weekly concerts online every Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout the COVID-19 concert cancellation period.

The first broadcast started Wednesday night, and featured Mahler’s Symphony No. 7 in B minor, “Song of the night”. The concert was a concert recorded on Monday, March 17, 2014 at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, Austria, an OSM / Medici.tv co-production.

On Friday, March 20 at 12:00 p.m. (broadcast until March 23 at 8:00 p.m.) music lovers will be able to see and hear Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor, B. 178, “Du Nouveau Monde” with the OSM under the baton of Kent Nagano. This concert was originally recorded back on May 31, 2017 at the Maison symphonique de Montréal, an OSM / Prodcan co-production for Medici.tv.

Concerts for the following weeks will be announced as they become available.

This is great news for music lovers looking to find solace in music during this time of social isolation.

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra have yet to announce any plans for presenting concerts online, but this seems like a ripe opportunity for them; especially after the Matthew Loden’s Op-Ed in The Globe & Mail last week.
