Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts on iPad

The Philharmonia Orchestra and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen have  created an application for iPad which allows real-time selection of multiple video and audio tracks, along with an automatically synchronised score and dynamic graphical note-by-note visualisation of each piece as it is played.

The Orchestra app also provides introduction to each of the instruments and interview with Salonen.

The app includes eight pieces from Haydn’s Symphony No 6 to Salonen’s Violin Concerto.

Orchestral pieces included on the app: Haydn: Symphony No 6, Beethoven: Symphony No 5, Berlioz: Symphony Fantastique, Debussy: Prélude à l'après midi d'un faune, Mahler: Symphony No 6, Stravinsky: The Firebird, Lutosławski: Concerto for Orchestra, Salonen: Violin Concerto
