Deutsche Welle, on Wednesday, launched their DW Classical Music Channel on YouTube, right in time for the beginning of the 250th birthday celebrations of Beethoven, exactly and also in tune, too! Most of their first videos on this platform are focusing on the German composer, also including a recording of his Sixth Symphony "Pastoral" as well as interviews with some of the leading contemporary conductors like Teodor Currentzison, the composer.
DW Classical Music has taken a contemporary as well as a multifaceted approach for presenting all aspects of classical music. Via interviews with singers and other musicians, documentaries of behind-the-scenes on orchestras, and also comparisons as well as connections to different genres, the YouTube channel offers something to both the longtime fans of classical music and the newcomers to this style of music.
English is the primary language of the channel, but the recordings of the concert in their pure musical form cross all language barriers.
Its concert houses, like Dresden's Semperoper, Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie, and Berlin's Philharmonie, are all shining icons of classical music.
Whether it be enthusiastic listeners or star performers or even motivated music students, Germany is drawing classical music fans as well as participants from all around the world to a landscape of musica which is unlike any other. DW Classical Music is now bringing this landscape to digital users.
The playlists that are available at this channel's launch include "Sarah's Music with horn player Sarah Willis,", "Musica Maestra along with conductor Alondra de la Parra", "Listen and Watch by your private concert hall", and "Artists in their own words," that is featuring interviews as well as portraits of leading classical artists of both today and tomorrow.
