Video: Copenhagen Philharmonic Surprises Subway Riders with Grieg

Monday, May 07, 2012 - 05:36 PM

The zany musicians of the Copenhagen Philharmonic are at it again. Having previously staged a flash-mob rendition of Ravel's Bolero in Copenhagen's Central Station, the musicians took the next step last month and boarded a moving, crowded metro train to perform Grieg's Peer Gynt. The flash mob was created in collaboration with Denmark's Radio Klassisk.

Would such a performance make your commute more enjoyable?

Ironically, this orchestral performance was lacking a conductor but managed to stay on track no doubt to good training.
