Now the Music Director of Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire tells Deutsche Welle that he's planning on organizing a rave as a post-symphony event, to follow a world premiere piece by Sergei Prokofiev's grandson, Gabriel, a London-based ~classical DJ~ who melds classical music with beats.
"And we'll also do a world premiere of a piece by Sergei Prokofiev's grandson, Gabriel Prokofiev. He is a very unique composer who combines electronica with orchestral instruments and compositions. So, his piece is essentially a variation on the themes of "An die Freude" from the Ninth Symphony for a DJ and an orchestra.
At the end of the concert, we'll open the concert hall into a giant rave for the young people of Nantes to enjoy an experience that they might not otherwise have with an orchestra."
Classical riot meets classical rave. Current status: Awesomer!
