Live performances of classical music are important because they allow the audience to experience the music in a way that cannot be replicated through recordings or radio programs. As Interlude HK notes, “That’s where the real sound of music is heard, and at live performances, that is where you get to feel the music deeply.” The energy and emotion of a live performance can be felt by everyone in the audience, creating a shared experience that can be incredibly powerful and inspirational.
