How did the invention of electricity change our relationship with music? How has the possibility of listening to music via the radio and recorded music, or more recently via Youtube or live streaming, changed our willingness to listen to live music? Leading figures from the European musical scene – Karsten Witt (1952, Germany), former Chairman of Deutsche Grammophon and former Director of the Vienna Konzerthaus, Louwrens Langevoort (1957, Netherlands), Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Cologne, and Simon Reinink (1966, Netherlands), Director of the Concertgebouw, in Amsterdam – will talk about recent transformations in the forms of creation, production and reception of music.
