In 2019, Gunter Pretzel and I created a clever app that makes the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra sound virtually on a meadow behind the Munich Gasteig. As if the musicians were set up there, you walk between the musicians with your smartphone and headphones and step into the sound of the orchestra. You hear and experience the orchestra as the musicians themselves experience what’s happening, and you can choose who you want sitting next to you: the violins, the oboe, the timpani or whatever you want to hear.

4 years later, I have now built an update! You can now have the experience anywhere in the world, no matter where you are! All you need is an open-air meadow. Also, the app is now in English.



You can listen to a recording of the fourth movement of the Spring Symphony by Robert Schumann, recorded with the Munich Philharmonic in March 2019 under the baton of Pablo Heras-Casado. See here with what enthusiasm he tried out the app:
