That feeling when you casually fall into a youtube recommendation spiral and wind up with your head in your hands weeping for the cruel beauty of the human condition

This performance has energy and is technically solid but what amazed me the most is how engaged the musicians are. This not your average orchestra with a bunch of stuck up old people who are just playing a concert. These musicians are engaged with the music and obviously care about their craft. This is refreshing to see and I hope to see the rest of the western art music world follow their lead.

A solid, coherent, and energetic performance of the 9th symphony with the Oslo Philharmonic, and in 4k! for free?! meanwhile the Berlin Philharmonic is charging 150 euros for a 12 month pass for their digital concert hall. And nearly half of their concert archive isn't even in true HD. What the Olso Philharmonic is doing here is what I call: doing art for art's sake.

Spectacular performance, rated number one by this 77 year old. Thanks to the videographer it's possible to see the complexity of the masterpiece and experience the passion in performance. Just an exceptional performance. Thanks for posting.

Quel splendide orchestre...quelle belle prestation. On est transporté au bout des notes de tous ces musiciens ! Et le chef... quelle maîtrise du haut de sa vingtaine d’année. Magnifique. Merci

Assistir e ouvir esse espetáculo é como um presente. Um verdadeiro bálsamo, em um momento em que tantas coisas ruins acontecem no Brasil (140 mil mortos na pandemia SARS COVID-19 além da tragédia ambiental) Agradeço esse momento de conforto e paz. Parabéns ao maestro Klaus Mäkelä e a Oslo Philarmônica.

The first flute and the timpanist deserve a special standing ovation as well, probably the hardest working musicians in this epic gruelling masterpiece, perfectly conducted this night.

Professional musicians are so valuable. Long live the orchestra.

Ok YouTube, I would gladly sit through 7 ads at the beginning if it meant not being interrupted in the middle of a symphony!

Increíble que Klaus siendo tan joven sea director de la orquesta. Sin duda una persona muy brillante.
