Dutch music collective Pynarello brings a fresh approach to classical music. Classical masterpieces are played without a conductor, mostly without sheet music and by a collective of top young musicians. They consider it not just a gimmick, but a radically different approach to music making, giving them much more flexibility and freedom while requiring intense communication between the musicians themselves as well as the audience. The performance is free and open to the public. For more info
