Thanks listener!

Good thread idea.  :)

The Philadelphia Orchestra is doing something similar:

https://www.philorch.org/live

The Philadelphia Orchestra and Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin performed BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 5 & 6 concert to an empty Verizon Hall for live broadcast on Thursday, March 12 on Facebook Live.

The Orchestra’s radio partner, WRTI-FM 90.1, will broadcast the March 12 performance on March 13 at 2 PM EST and March 15 at 1 PM EST. The performance will also be available on WHYY-TV at a later date.

“As The Philadelphia Orchestra suspends concerts and events in response to COVID-19, we offer this special concert—performed to an empty Verizon Hall—to be streamed live to audiences throughout Philadelphia and around the world,” said Orchestra President and CEO Matías Tarnopolsky. “To share music with our communities in this way speaks beautifully to the power of music to connect us all—even when we cannot be together in the concert hall. We are very grateful to WRTI for their long-term support of the Orchestra on the radio and to WHYY for responding so warmly and swiftly in the current circumstances.”

Nice to hear (read) about these concerts!  I saw something on the news today that various non-classical artists were posting live concerts and using this hashtag to try and encourage other artists to do the same. Like this one on Instagram here:  https://www.instagram.com/p/B90Ft_knpuT/

#TogetherAtHome

Perhaps some classical artists will join in?

I watched the 2010 Sibelius Fourth with Simon Rattle on the Berlin Philharmonic website last night.

Music Never Sleeps NYC - marathon livestream, Friday, March 27
« Reply #11 on: March 21, 2020, 11:17:48 AM »
Next Friday, starting at 6pm (EDT), a 24-hour livestream will feature a starry array of musicians, all performing from various NYC venues (including, I assume, some of the artists' homes). Hope to know a more precise schedule soon, but I am anticipating being up for the late segment, from midnight until 6am.  :D

various Beethoven chamber works (or Kamarimusiik) live performed on Finnish tv.

I watched the Op 130 string quartet / jousikvartetto.

Wow, thanks, North Star.

I can't help but notice there is a series of Sibelius symphonies with Lintu preceded by a sort football commentary by the conductor and another guy. A couple of bars of music and then the two men start talking about what happened, probably.

PS it turns out that the other sports commentator is the composer Osmo Tapio Räihälä.

Yes, the other guy is Osmo Tapio Räihälä, a Finnish contemporary composer, he also presents introductions to the works in Finnish RSO concerts on the live recordings, available in the videos of whole concerts, with talk before the concert, during intermission & after. That's the pianist Jukka Nykänen, but Räihälä did an interview with Colin Davis about Sibelius in Ainola, sadly not available online anymore.  There's no subtitles, though lots of guest interviews are in English, and as separate videos.

That Sibelius football commentary is available here with subtitles I presume ;):

Oh, crumbs!  Do you remember *what website had the interview with Colin Davis and roughly when it had been posted?  One might be able to google it and/or find it through the internet archive...hopefully?

Reread your posting, so I'm guessing that the interview was on the YLE's website?

p.s. What is YLE Areena?  Also, is there a way to see it in English?  Wish that I knew Finnish!   :(

Best,
