Orkiestrownik, a mobile app released by the Institute of Music and Dance and the National Audiovisual Institute in September 2016, received a nomination for the award granted by the RMF Classic radio station.
The app offers an innovative, interactive way of exploring orchestral music and instruments. It gives users an unprecedented view of how classical music is made. The free-of-charge application for Android and iOS features multi-channel recording of Maurice Ravel’s Bolero, which might be viewed from the perspective of the conductor and the players of each instrumental section. While using the application, users can follow the score, watch videos or read micro-essays of Sinfonia Varsovia's principals telling about their instrument, listen to Polish conductor Jerzy Maksymiuk explaining what his job was and use other functions.
The winners of the MocArt RMF Classic award will be selected through online voting, which is available at: www.rmfclassic.pl. The results will be announced on March 13, 2017.
