A 15-by-20 foot video screen cutting the orchestra in two while they play Wagner and Brahms. How does this make the symphony more user-friendly? “[T]he younger generation is more responsive to visual stimuli” says Benjamin M. Rosen, a Philharmonic trustee who spearheaded and financed the experiment.
