"The great thing about having a showcase at Classical:NEXT is that I could arrange everything for my performance exactly as I wanted to have it, from the programme to the question of which clothes to wear
onstage."

What is a Video showcase?

Classical:NEXT video showcases are a new presentation format. The 9-minute video presentations show recent projects of musicians, ensembles or larger productions via live footage, interviews or documentaries about the artistic content and context.

The video showcases are thus an ideal opportunity to present large ensembles or staged productions such as operas. At the same time, this format is designed to enable artists, ensembles or productions to present themselves when traveling or scheduling issues make a live appearance impossible. Moreover, the video showcases are an appropriate way to present work in progress to the professional community at Classical:NEXT.

For maximum effectiveness, each video presentation should include not only live footage of the ensemble or production, but also information about the artistic content and context. To that end, we suggest including interview segments with the composer, conductor or artistic director. Basic production and logistical information may be supplied in writing or as part of the video itself. Please contact us at next@classicalnext.com for further information.

 

"Immediately after my presentation, several representatives approached me and throughout the day some even suggested concrete deals for international appearances of our contemporary music ensemble. It is amazing how much business one man alone can do thanks to this video showcase format."

John Harris, Chief Executive and Artistic Co-Director of scottish Red Note Ensemble, Scotland
