That feeling when you casually fall into a youtube recommendation spiral and wind up with your head in your hands weeping for the cruel beauty of the human condition

A solid, coherent, and energetic performance of the 9th symphony with the Oslo Philharmonic, and in 4k! for free?! meanwhile the Berlin Philharmonic is charging 150 euros for a 12 month pass for their digital concert hall. And nearly half of their concert archive isn't even in true HD. What the Olso Philharmonic is doing here is what I call: doing art for art's sake.

Quel splendide orchestre...quelle belle prestation. On est transporté au bout des notes de tous ces musiciens ! Et le chef... quelle maîtrise du haut de sa vingtaine d’année. Magnifique. Merci

This performance has energy and is technically solid but what amazed me the most is how engaged the musicians are. This not your average orchestra with a bunch of stuck up old people who are just playing a concert. These musicians are engaged with the music and obviously care about their craft. This is refreshing to see and I hope to see the rest of the western art music world follow their lead.

Spectacular performance, rated number one by this 77 year old. Thanks to the videographer it's possible to see the complexity of the masterpiece and experience the passion in performance. Just an exceptional performance. Thanks for posting.

Harry Potter conducting Beethoven. Well, that's what I thought when I saw this. He was only 23 in 2019. My favorite movement, the 3rd, is just perfect, and the timpani are miked fantastically. People forget that it was the only percussion instrument regularly used by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. I'm going to keep my eye on this kid.

I'm going to go out on limb and say that I've never heard a 9th better played, and the recording is amazing. This gives me hope for the world and for all young people.

The conductor literally looks like Shostakovich 😂😂 I couldn’t stop staring at his face lol
