Videojuicer had the pleasure of bringing a stunning concert to the internet last Saturday - world famous conductor Gustavo Dudamel with the Símon Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, performing a programme of works from Beethoven and Britten.
Southbank Centre commissioned Videojuicer to produce its flagship Festival of the World event, Sounds Venezuela 2012: two sold-out concerts from the global sensation Gustavo Dudamel conducting the Símon Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, also part of the London 2012 Festival.
The first performance, last Saturday (June 23) was filmed by Videojuicer and live-streamed to the Guardian and Southbank Centre websites. The programme included Ludwig Van Beethoven's Overture, Egmont; Benjamin Britten's The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, and Beethoven's, Symphony No.3 (Eroica). It concluded with a special encore of Edward Elgar's Nimrod.
Southbank Centre are also using Videojuicer’s platform to deliver the concerts on demand via their website, and Gustavo Dudamel has used our sharing capabilities to share these recording with his huge global following on Facebook.
In an unprecedented collaboration the artist, the venue and the label have come together to use the video-on-demand to content cross-promote sales of Dudamel’s recordings in the Deutsche Grammaphon catalogue using Videojuicer’s unique in-player shopping technology.
It's a great showcase for our technology, and we’re proud to be involved with such a great venue and such wonderful artists. Impressive sponsors, too: Sounds Venezuela is part of Shell Classic International; Southbank Centre’s Festival of the World is produced in association with Mastercard; London 2012 Festival is part of the Cultural Olympiad.
