Classical music concerts in temporary venues


In an auditorium designed for musical performances with electroacoustic amplification, how can you create a clarity and presence of sound even during the pianissimo passages of a piano concerto – a sound which seems to originate right from inside the grand piano? The answer is by setting up a concert shell and by using VIVACE. With these measures, the Musical Theater Basel can be used as an interim venue for all kinds of classical music concerts during the three years of renovation of the Basel Stadtcasino. Performances include piano recitals, concerts of chamber music ensembles as well as symphony orchestras. After Murray Perahia's concert, the press headline simply was "Brilliant acoustics".
