CD Sale

We all know the January sales are a bit of a nightmare. Hordes of people, queues, merchandise scattered everywhere, and then you end up buying something you don’t really want, simply because it’s cheap. How many of us have items of clothing in the wardrobe that we’ve bought in the sale and never ever worn?

Add some glamour to your life with the OAE Green Travel Mug

Fri 4 May 2012

OAE Green Travel Mug

The girls of the OAE office lead a fabulous life. It’s full of glitz, glamour, shopping and gossip. And the occasional technical schedule, fundraising event or marketing campaign. In recent weeks though, the glamour factor has been somewhat upped by the girls getting hold of the ultimate lifestyle accessory, the OAE goes green mug. It’s not too much of an overstatement to say that this has transformed their lives. Even the dull, grey and boring-mug filled world of Communications Director Will has been radically changed, as you’ll see in the footage above.

Beethoven on DVD (couldn’t think of a more exciting title…)

Fri 19 Aug 2011

Vladimir Jurowski on the cover of the Beethoven DVD

It seems appropriate to tell you now (as we are currently, as I type, rehearsing with him) that a DVD of the OAE and conductorVladimir Jurowski has just been released. If you’re a regular OAE-goer you may remember him kicking off our Beethoven series back in January last year with a blazing performance of Symphonies 4 and 7. We later performed No.7 at the Roundhouse as a Night Shift, but after those two performances we went on to Paris and gave the concert again. There it was streamed live and that recording has now been released on DVD. It’s shot (to my mind at least) in a a really exciting way, so you often feel like you’re really inside the Orchestra, and it’s fascinating watching Vladimir, his expressions  and his cues to the Orchestra – not something you often see when you watch a concert from the audience. You can get a taster of the DVD on the clip below:

 

The DVD is available now, from, as they say, all good shops. Of course, the BEST shop is the OAE website, and you can buy it through us here. Our shop will be much improved when our new website goes live. More on that soon…
