Bringing culture to the masses.

I'd say this was a fun way for them to gain publicity. There was clearly a lot of careful planning involved.

I especially enjoyed some of the quizzical expressions from people in the crowd. smile

Thank you for sharing that.

Ravel is More than "Bolero"

Thanks for posting this link.

Although it's certainly his best known work, Ravel himself was not overly fond of "Bolero". He is reputed to have said about it, "I have written one masterpiece. Unfortunately, it contains no music."

If someone wants to try another side of Ravel, I suggest listening to "Le Tombeau de Couperin". It's as melodically varied as "Bolero" is insistent. The entire twenty minutes is one beautiful phrase after another.

Flash Mob Culture

Social media has made the `flash mob` a cultural phenomenom. At one time it was simply called guerilla theatre but has evolved into a real art form. The first flash mob that I recall was in the music video for Fatboy Slim (remember the amateur dance group outside of a movie theatre cool ).

Being present for a one-off performance by a symphony at a train station would be an event. But it would I think lose its lustre if it was a regular occurrence.
