As part of the festivities of the Austrian Consulate in Hamburg, the grand round dome of the Hamburg Planetarium saw Anton Bruckner’s 5th symphony on October 29, 2018 and marked the evening’s musical highlight. Produced as a VR concert event by Bellevue Virtual Media at the Bruckner Days festival in the basilica of St. Florian in Upper Austria, the Altomonte Festival Orchestra under the baton of conductor Rémy Ballot conveyed a very lifelike 360° virtual impression of the original concert atmosphere – last but not least thanks to its authentic spatial sound recording.

This immersive concert production made by Bellevue Virtual Media is the first part of the BRUCKNER VR EXPERIENCE captured in August 2017 with the latest of VR camera technology, and is designed for use in VR glasses and in shared VR environments, co-produced in cooperation with Hartlauer .
