​Experience the music from the real ringside seats – where the musicians themselves sit.

After contributing some of last year's VR experiences, the Philharmonia Orchestra this year presents its two latest virtual performances.

For more than ten years, the British orchestra, led by chief conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, has focused on reaching an audience beyond the traditional concert hall. Having developed groundbreaking sound technology in which 18 loudspeakers produce a feeling of being at the centre of the music, the audience will experience the pieces in momentous detail.

Equipped with VR headsets, the audience travels from the conductor's podium and into outer space. In Mahler 3: Live from London, the last ten minutes of Mahler's epic third symphony is performed. Beethoven's Fifth was created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, and combines the first movement of Beethoven's fifth symphony, played by the orchestra, with images from space.

Beethoven's Fifth has won a Raindance Film Award and was selected for the VR cinema programme for the SXSW in 2018.
