Hear here! is a very interesting year-long multi-media project exploring how we listen to music. The project will focus on a new aspect of listening each month and present a series of concerts at venues and festivals across the country, with related music being broadcast on Classic FM.
At the centre of the project will be the live concert experience with performances of key works from Purcell, Stravinsky, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Dvorak, Mendelssohn, Walton and Vaughan Williams nationwide. Each month, a different piece of music will be the focus of concerts, as well as broadcast and online information and interaction, plus talks, debates and discussions: the equivalent of a nationwide reading group, but for classical music. The idea is to attune the ears to close listening, with advice on how to “read” a piece of music.
