Another up and coming VR application is the Four Strings Around the World project. Featuring Romanian violinist, Irina Muresanu, the app takes its audience around the world as she plays beautiful melodies with her violin.


Four Strings Around the Virtual World
Led by researchers from the University of Maryland School of Music, where Muresanu also teaches, the project centers on Four Strings Around the World. It’s Muresanu’s audio, which celebrates the diversity of musical cultures by unifying them through her violin.

The app, however, is a more ambitious venture than the PlayStation VR experience. That’s because its purpose isn’t merely for entertainment. They designed it for musical education as well. Through the app, users can have a one-on-one lesson with Muresanu. They can see and observe the movement of her hands and her bow arms in great detail.

Takeaway
Virtual reality provides new ways of experiencing classical music. In particular, it provides experiences that younger generations might find easier to relate to. Although the technology is fairly new, it’s already touted as the savior of this timeless music scene. Like Muresanu and Bell, we hope that it does spread the love of classical music.
