The capital's classical music enthusiasts are enjoying October thanks to the annual Beijing Music Festival, which features concerts by musicians from all over the world.

For its organizer, one way to expand the festival's fan base is by taking advantage of innovation and so, during this year's festival, which runs until Sunday, some performances have been staged to display the impact of technology on classical music.

Among them was the concert, Pastoral for the Planet, performed by the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, which included pieces such as Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No 6 in F Major, Op 68, the Introduction (La Tempesta) from Die Geschopfe des Prometheus, Op 43 and the second movement of the Symphony No 7 in A Major, Op 92.

Spanish avant-garde theater troupe La Fura dels Baus, founded in 1979 in Barcelona, which is known for producing the opening ceremony of the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, joined in with installations, performances, visuals and sound.
