Opera…in a Hangar? Die Entführung aus dem Serail – Salzburg Festspiele 2013
Owned by Dietrich Mateschitz (founder of energy drink company Red Bull) Hangar-7 (in Salzburg, Austria), is a not really a hangar but a multifunctional cultural center hosting a collection of historical airplanes, helicopters and racing cars. Plus restaurant and bar.
Last Monday, August 26th, this unconventional space hosted an even more unconventional performance of Mozart´s opera “The Abduction from the Seraglio” (Die Entführung aus dem Serail, K.384).
Singers wander among the audience, providing a unique, intimate experience.
The full video of the performance can be found HERE

New Technology Allows Old Piano Recordings Sound like Today´s Best Digital Music Records!
Zenph, a North Carolina-based company, has developed a new technology capable of capturing the sound of old piano recordings in digital sound, analyzing the recording, and then re-performing, tha is having a real piano play exactly as it was played in the recording – with a very high degree of fidelity.
This has so far allowed to make a digital sound recording of old performers in the mono era such as Glenn Gould, Rachmaninoff, Gershwin and others, liberating music from its medium in a previously unthinkable way!
Their website has an amazing example with a 1921 Rachmaninoff recording.
They were able to create a duet with Rachmaninoff at the piano and Joshua Bell at the violin.
