Video-on-Demand: The Orchestral Instruments: The ViolinsKinderveranstaltung

KonserthusetPlayAufgenommen am Konserthuset Stockholm: Stora Salen, Stockholm, Schweden

Meet some of the orchestra's violinists, and listen to how it sounds when all 29 players play at one and the same time!

They are not the biggest, but the most. Many times there are 30 violins playing together in the symphony orchestra. The violin often plays the melodies, but also rhythms and sounds. The instrument has four strings and the musician uses a bow to create the sound. The threads on the bow is actually horsehair. 

This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together.

The series about the orchestral instruments is produced with the support of Konserthuset Stockholm's main sponsor SEB.
