Friday Video: 'Morning Mood' on the Metro

Friday, May 11, 2012

Isabella/Susan reporting:

Today's video isn't particularly historical, but it is a delightful way to start the day, and the weekend, too. One morning last month, members of the Copenhagen Philharmonic surprised commuters on the subway with a flash-mob-style interpretation of Edvard Greig's Morning Mood, Peer Gynt Suite, no. 1. Op no. 1. Even if you're not a great fan of classical music, you'll recognize this piece - and enjoy the response of the commuters to this impromptu concert.

Maybe patriotism, but I prefer the Finnish one with a choir singing at a Railway station. Sound is more authentic than in the Danish video.

Lovely! And wasn't that little girl at the end just gorgeous - a wee cutie-pie!

This is GREAT! And I love the part near the beginning when the bassoon is pulled out, haha.

Lucky commuters, thank you, made my Saturday morning (I'm in Australia, so a day ahead). I love your blog post, so interesting, fun and informative, thanks!

What lovely faces and how sweet the little girl who looks up with wonder in her expression.
