Academy of St Martin in the Fields

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras, renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s greatest orchestral music.  
Formed by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in November 1959. Through unrivalled live performances and a vast recording output – highlights of which include the 1969 best-seller Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film Amadeus – the Academy quickly gained an enviable international reputation for its distinctive, polished and refined sound. With over 500 releases in a much-vaunted discography and a comprehensive international touring programme, the name and sound of the Academy is known and loved by classical audiences throughout the world.  
Today the Academy is led by Music Director and virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell, retaining the collegiate spirit and flexibility of the original small, conductor-less ensemble which has become an Academy hallmark. Under Bell's direction, and with the support of Leader/Director Tomo Keller and Principal Guest Conductor Murray Perahia, the Academy continues to push the boundaries of play-directed performance to new heights, presenting symphonic repertoire and chamber music on a grand scale at prestigious venues around the globe.  
The orchestra celebrates its 60th anniversary in the 2019/20 season with exciting projects in the UK and beyond, including a Gala concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, tours of the UK and USA with Joshua Bell, a European tour with Murray Perahia and collaborations with artists including clarinettist Jörg Widmann and pianist Fazıl Say.  
Complementing a busy international schedule, the Academy continues to reach out to people of all ages and backgrounds through its Learning and Participation programmes. The orchestra’s composition and performance workshops are now intergenerational with local older people joining with schools; partnerships with Southbank Sinfonia, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Royal Northern College of Music and masterclasses on tour further the development of the professional musicians of tomorrow; the Academy provides a creative outlet for some of London’s most vulnerable adults at a centre for homeless people, a highlight of 2019 being a 12-hour performance of Gavin Bryars’ »Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet« at London’s Tate Modern. A regular programme of pre-concert talks and podcasts create opportunities for Academy audiences over the world to connect and learn with the orchestra.

Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra

Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra

Ton Koopman founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra (ABO) in 1979. The group consists of internationally renowned baroque specialists who meet up several times a year and work together to prepare and perform new exciting programs. For the musicians each concert is a new experience and Koopman’s boundless energy and enthusiasm are a sure guarantee for the highest quality.
In 1994 Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir embarked upon the most ambitious recording project of the last decades: the integral recording of Bach’s secular and sacred cantatas. For this extraordinary project Koopman and his ensemble received the German »ECHO Klassik«.
In 2014 the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir finished another grand project: performing and recording all the works by Dieterich Buxtehude, a great source of inspiration for the young Johann Sebastian Bach. The final volume of this series was released in 2014. 
That year also marked the 35th anniversary of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and featured an extensive tour in the Netherlands and in Europe. The children’s theatrical music production »Oorwurm«, a project that Ton Koopman undertook together with his daughter Marieke Koopman, made baroque music of the highest quality accessible for young people throughout the Netherlands, thus fulfilling a life-long dream of Ton Koopman. 
The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir have recorded all major baroque and classical works. Major recognitions include the »Gramophone Award«, the »Diapason d’Or« and two »Edison Awards«. In 2008 the ensemble and Ton Koopman have been honoured with the prestigious »BBC Award«, and in 2009, for the second time with an »ECHO Klassik« for Vol. VII of »Dieterich Buxtehude – Opera Omnia«. Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir are regular guests at the major concert halls and festivals of Europe, the USA and Asia.

BBC Philharmonic

The BBC Philharmonic is reimagining the orchestral experience for a new generation – challenging perceptions, championing innovation and taking a rich variety of classical music to the widest range of audiences. One of the most adventurous, innovative and dynamic orchestras in Europe, it performs dozens of concerts every year, leads a far-reaching learning and participation programme, collaborates widely with musicians across a diverse range of genres, and is bringing an array of cutting-edge new technology into the concert hall. The core of the BBC Philharmonic’s work is its extensive programme of concerts: more than 100 every year, all but a handful of which are broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Around a third of these concerts take place in the orchestra’s custom-designed studio at MediaCityUK in Salford, its home since 2011. Encompassing everything from traditional repertoire to contemporary works, the concerts in this Salford series are completely free and are enjoyed by more than 8,000 attendees every year. Presenting and promoting new music are key missions of the BBC Philharmonic, which regularly commissions and premieres works by today’s leading composers. The orchestra’s personnel are drawn from far and wide, from distinguished longstanding members with a wealth of experience to some of the brightest and most brilliant young orchestral musicians in Europe. The BBC Philharmonic’s Chief Conductor is Omer Meir Wellber, who joined the orchestra for the start of the 2019/20 season. Described by »The Times« Richard Morrison as »arguably the most inspired musical appointment the BBC has made for years«, Israel-born Wellber has quickly built an international reputation as one of the most exciting young conductors working today. The orchestra also has strong ongoing relationships with its Chief Guest Conductor John Storgårds, and Ben Gernon, Principal Guest Conductor since 2017. The orchestra places learning and education at the heart of its mission, and is an enthusiastic pioneer of new ways for audiences of all ages to experience its music.

Berlin Philharmonic

Founded in 1882 as a self-governing body, the Berliner Philharmoniker has long been esteemed as one of the world’s greatest orchestras. Hans von Bülow, Arthur Nikisch and Wilhelm Furtwängler were the orchestra’s first chief conductors, leaving their distinctive mark on the Berliner Philharmoniker in its early years. In 1955 Herbert von Karajan became the orchestra’s artistic director and, during the ensuing years, worked with the musicians to develop a unique tonal quality and performing style that made the Berliner Philharmoniker famous throughout the world. Claudio Abbado, chief conductor from 1989 to 2002, devised a new type of programming, with increased emphasis on contemporary works, additional chamber music series and concert performances of operas. He was followed by Sir Simon Rattle, who led the orchestra from September 2002 until the end of the 2017/2018 season. During his tenure, the Education Programme of the Berliner Philharmoniker was initiated to ensure that the orchestra reaches a wider and, especially, younger audience. In November 2007, the orchestra and its artistic director Sir Simon Rattle were appointed as UNICEF goodwill ambassadors, the first artistic ensemble to receive this honour. In 2009, the Digital Concert Hall was launched, an innovative video platform in which concerts of the Berliner Philharmoniker are broadcast live over the Internet and are available as recordings in the video archive. In 2014 the orchestra founded its own label, Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings. During an orchestra assembly on 21 June 2015, Kirill Petrenko was elected by a large majority of the orchestra members as the new chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker. He took up his position at the opening of the 2019/2020 season. The Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation is generously supported by its principal sponsor, the Deutsche Bank.

Cohen's 17th album as a leader is clearly identified with his own unique DNA and heartbeat. »Arvoles« makes you float between key trio songs with the compliment of horns on several of the tracks, a working unit of deliberation, spirit, and giving you real joy. Avishai Cohen with his dynamic trio will be touring extensively in the year ahead with recording partner, pianist and composer Elchin Shirinov from Azerbaijan and the creative and distinctive Noam David, a drummer and composer whose rich style and complex polyrhythmic sounds have contributed greatly to the ever growing music scene in Israel and who has accompanied Avishai Cohen for many years.

Jamie Cullum

Jamie Cullum

is a celebrated musician the world over with loyal fans in every corner of the globe. Over the last 18 years his legendary live shows have seen him perform at festivals alongside artists as diverse as Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, St Vincent and Lang Lang. In addition to his enduringly successful recording career, with eight albums under his belt and number nine about to arrive, he has also established himself as a multi-award-winning music broadcaster. Jamie approaches all aspects of his career, as he has from the beginning, as both a fan and a student with seemingly boundless creativity and enthusiasm. Half a lifetime ago he used his student loan to record his first LP, »Heard It All Before«. Since those days the mix of talent, luck and sheer hard graft has been a constant feature of Jamie’s career. The success of his major label breakthrough »Twentysomething« and its follow up »Catching Tales« saw him nominated for a »Brit«, »Grammy« and numerous other awards around the world, but the most important outcome of the five years he spent in the tireless promotion of these records is an enviable live career that is truly global. Cullum’s world tour took in over forty countries. Jamie has even become the guest director of some of his favourite festivals, producing extraordinary shows such as orchestral specials at the Royal Albert Hall for two BBC Proms, the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic and a night of Jazz and Drum ’n’ Bass at The Forum in London. Jamie is also enjoyed by myriad radio listeners on his globally syndicated radio show. Based in jazz, but dipping into the world of hip-hop, electronic music and beyond, the show features music, interviews and live sessions. It initially airs on BBC Radio 2 and has garnered over a dozen awards since its debut in 2010. Still Jamie manages to share his time across other projects including the »Mercury Music Prize«, for which he is a judge, and charities that help promote music to young people, in addition to working with In House Records, which uses music in the rehabilitation of offenders. Jamie was also delighted to be asked to record a song for the most recent BBC’s »Children In Need« television fundraising campaign.

Pape Diouf

Pape Diouf

Born in 1973 in Dakar, Pape Cheikh Diouf is from a »guewel« (griot) family originally of the Siné-Saloum Delta region in southwestern Senegal. As a youth, he was sent to his uncle’s house to learn the plumbing trade. But his passion was music, which he pursued in his spare time and ultimately decided was his path to follow. Along with his enormous talent, Pape Diouf is known and admired for representing certain human and social values that are central to Senegalese culture. His captivating sound and charismatic performance have inspired references to »the new Youssou Ndour«. Now that Ndour is Minister of Tourism and no longer performs, Pape Diouf is seen as the likely successor to the master of »mbalax«. Even in his movements and vocal style, Pape emulates his idol, who in turn has called him »the future of Senegalese music«. In 1995, at the age of 22, he joined the Lemzo Diamono Group, where his talent became widely recognized. After going solo in 1998, several frustrating years passed before his first album »Live au Biddew« (Tribu/Lampe Fall, 2003), and an U.S. tour. It was then that Pape Diouf met Mamadou »Jimi« Mbaye, lead guitarist of Youssou Ndour’s band Super Étoile de Dakar, who helped him record and produce »Partir!« (Jololi, 2004), opening the door to a promising career. It was also the launch of Pape Diouf et la Génération Consciente, his band which has now been together for more than 18 years. Since then he has released many highly succesfull albums and toured around the world. His newest album »Enjoy!« was released in 2018. Pape Diouf has emerged as one of the most important voices in contemporary Senegalese music. More than just a prolific hit maker, he draws on his family’s »guewel« traditions to sing about love, life lessons and the Wolof ideal of »teranga«: mutual respect, acceptance and hospitality that’s at the core of Senegalese life.

Dresden Kammerchor

Dresden Kammerchor

The Dresden Kammerchor is one of the leading choirs in Germany. Since its foundation in 1985 by Hans-Christoph Rademann it has become firmly established on the German and European musical scene. With initiatives such as the first complete recording of Heinrich Schütz (since 2009) and a continuing interest in researching and promoting the musical legacy of central Germany, the choir helps shape the cultural identity of this region, working internationally as an ambassador for Dresden and Saxony. In collaboration with the Dresden Barockorchester and other musical partners, numerous works have been rediscovered, performed and recorded. Recordings of works by Heinrich Schütz, Johann Adolph Hasse, Johann David Heinichen and Jan Dismas Zelenka have been honored with numerous prizes including the »Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik« (German Record Critics’ Award) of the Year 2016. Alongside the oratories and sacred works of Baroque masters such as Bach, Telemann and Händel, the choral-symphonic repertoire of the Classical and Romantic periods from Mozart via Mendelssohn to Brahms forms another main focus of the choir’s work. The Dresden Kammerchor is also renowned for the performance of challenging a cappella literature from the 19th and 20th centuries by composers such as Max Reger, Alfred Schnittke, Ernst Krenek, Olivier Messiaen and Herman Berlinski. The choir specializes in modern and contemporary music. This is reflected in numerous premieres, first performances, and new works commissioned by the choir. In 2009 Hans-Christoph Rademann and the Dresden Kammerchor initiated the first Dresden Choir Workshop for Contemporary Music, which had its fourth edition in 2018. The choir was awarded the »Ernst von Siemens Musikpreis« (Ernst von Siemens Music prize) for its services to contemporary music.

Dresden Kreuzchor

Dresden Kreuzchor

The Dresden Kreuzchor is one of the world’s oldest and most famous boys’ choirs. Its history dates back to the first mention of the city of Dresden in the early 13th century. More than 800 years later, its most important task is still the musical accompaniment of the vespers and services at Dresden’s Kreuzkirche. Here, the Dresden Kreuzchor performs in Vespers and services and regularly gives concerts with outstanding works of sacred music. They form the core of the repertoire and are an expression of the Christian-humanistic character of the choir. Alongside famous soloists, the Dresden Philharmonic and the Staatskapelle Dresden are major artistic partners. The Dresden Kreuzchor also collaborates with ensembles of early music such as the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and the Academy for Early Music of Berlin. The repertoire of the Dresden Kreuzchor ranges from Renaissance music to premieres of contemporary works. His extensive artistic work has been documented in numerous recordings. Several times a year, the Dresden Kreuzchor goes on national and international concert tours, beyond German and European borders to Israel, Canada, Japan, South America and the USA. Moreover, it performs at international music festivals and realizes countless radio and television recordings. It represents the Saxon state capital as its oldest cultural institution on almost all continents and has recently debuted at the Shanghai International Arts Festival and the Salzburg Easter Festivals. The choir singers are also regularly invited to opera roles as soloists. The Kreuzchor singers, called »Crucians«, still graduate at the Kreuzschule; about two third of them live in the adjacent boarding school. Next to their normal classes, the 130 singers – aged nine to eighteen – have weekly singing and instrumental lessons. Their daily rehearsals and the specific sound of the choir are the basis of the success and the fame of the Dresden Kreuzchor.

Orchestras

Dresden Philharmonic

Dresden Philharmonic

The Dresden Philharmonic can look back on 150 years of history as the orchestra of Saxony’s capital Dresden. When the so-called »Gewerbehaussaal« opened on 29 November 1870, the citizens of the city were given the opportunity to organise major orchestra concerts. Philharmonic concerts were held regularly starting in 1885; the orchestra adopted its present name in 1923. In its first decades, composers such as Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Dvořák and Strauss conducted the Dresdner Philharmonie with their own works. The first desks were presided over by outstanding concertmasters such as Stefan Frenkel, Simon Goldberg and the cellists Stefan Auber and Enrico Mainardi. From 1934, Carl Schuricht and Paul van Kempen led the orchestra; van Kempen in particular guided the Dresden Philharmonic to top achievements. All of Bruckner’s symphonies were first performed in their original versions, which earned the orchestra the reputation of a »Bruckner orchestra« and brought renowned guest conductors such as Hermann Abendroth, Eduard van Beinum, Fritz Busch, Eugen Jochum, Joseph Keilbert, Erich Kleiber, Hans Knappertsbusch and Franz Konwitschny to the rostrum. After 1945 and into the 1990s, Heinz Bongartz, Horst Förster, Kurt Masur (from 1994 also honorary conductor), Günther Herbig, Herbert Kegel, Jörg-Peter Weigle and Michel Plasson were the principal conductors. In recent years, conductors such as Marek Janowski, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos and Michael Sanderling have shaped the orchestra. Starting in the 2019-20 season, Marek Janowski will rejoin the Dresden Philharmonic as principal conductor and artistic director. Its home is the highly modern concert hall inaugurated in April 2017 in the Kulturpalast building in the heart of the historic old town. In romantic repertoire, the orchestra has preserved its very own »Dresden sound«. Furthermore, it is characterised by a flexibility in sound and style for the music of the Baroque and First Viennese School, as well as for modern works. World premieres continue to the present to play an important part in the orchestra’s programmes. Guest performances in major concert halls around the world demonstrate the high esteem enjoyed by the Dresden Philharmonic in the world of classical music. High-calibre education and family formats round out the offering for young people; the youngest concertgoers are brought into contact with classical music by attending rehearsals and school concerts. The orchestra supports young musical talent in the Kurt Masur Academy. The Philharmonic’s discography, which has been growing since 1937, also testifies to their broad spectrum. A new climax was reached with the CD cycle conducted by Michael Sanderling dedicated to the complete symphonies of Dmitri Shostakovich and Ludwig van Beethoven (Sony Classical).

Nora Fischer

Nora Fischer is challenging the way we listen to the voice. The Amsterdam-based singer is renowned for her adventurous approach to live performance and her creative projects fusing classical and contemporary repertoire. This can range from traditional concert programmes to genre-defying collaborations – such as her award-winning debut album »HUSH«, which was released on Deutsche Grammophon in April 2018, and her work with Yo-Yo Ma’s legendary Silkroad Ensemble. Using her voice as a versatile instrument, Nora’s repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to the many compositions that have been written for her in the present day. Her »affinity with experimental classical styles and sharp dramatic instincts« (»New York Times«) have led to many collaborations with leading contemporary composers, including Osvaldo Golijov, David Lang & Louis Andriessen. During the 2017/18 season, Nora signed with Universal Music and was nominated by the Concertgebouw to perform in major concert halls across Europe for the »ECHO Rising Stars« Tour. Nora’s unique approach has taken her around the globe, from the Philharmonie de Paris and Walt Disney Concert Hall to the Lowlands Pop Festival or a mysterious forest at the Oerol Theatre Festival. She has premiered many new operas, most recently working with the Dutch National Opera and Pierre Audi for the world premiere of Andriessen’s »Theatre of the World«. Other contemporary collaborations include performances with the Kronos Quartet, Asko|Schönberg Ensemble and l’Arpeggiata. In upcoming seasons, Nora has projects at venues including the Barbican, Lincoln Center, Concertgebouw and Berlin Festival, and has been invited on three tours with the Silkroad Ensemble, including her Australasian debut. In 2019, Nora also performs the world premiere of a new Andriessen commission with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra, and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic. Nora regularly performs solo concerts and devises projects involving baroque, classical and contemporary vocal repertoire, ranging from traditional concert programmes to genre-defying collaborations. She also frequently partners with a number of theatre companies in order to explore the intersection between new music and theatre. Born into a family with a rich musical tradition, Fischer trained at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen, and holds a Masters in New Audiences and Innovative Practice from the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague. She also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Musicology and Philosophy, completed at the University of Amsterdam in 2009.

Marek Janowski

Marek Janowski

Marek Janowski was Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin (RSB) from 2002 to 2015. Previously – to some extent simultaneously – he served, inter alia, as the music director of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (2005–2012), the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo (2000–2005) and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (1984–2000), which he developed into France’s top orchestra. In addition, he headed up the Gürzenich Orchestra in Cologne (1986–1990) and the Dresdner Philharmonie (2001–2003) for a number of years. Born in Warsaw in 1939, raised and educated in Germany, Marek Janowski’s creative path took him from Aachen, Cologne, Düsseldorf and Hamburg as general music director to Freiburg i. Br. and Dortmund. Since the late 1970s there is no opera house of international renown where he has not been a regular guest, from the Metropolitan Opera New York to the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, from San Francisco to Hamburg, Vienna and Paris. On the concert circuit, on which he has concentrated since the late 1990s, he continues the great German conducting tradition. He ranks worldwide as an outstanding Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms, Bruckner and Strauss conductor, as well as an expert in the French repertoire. His leave-taking from opera was, however, only institutional in nature, not musical – thus, Marek Janowski is considered one of the most knowledgeable conductors for Richard Wagner’s music, now more than ever. With the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, the Rundfunkchor Berlin and a phalanx of international soloists, he performed the ten operas and music dramas of the Bavarian canon in concert performances in Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall between 2010 and 2013. All the concerts were released by Pentatone on SACD in cooperation with Deutschlandradio. More than 50 recordings, often winning internationally awards – including several complete opera recordings and complete symphonic cycles – have been contributing for over 35 years to making Marek Janowski’s particular capabilities as a conductor internationally known. In 2016 and 2017 Marek Janowski returned once again to the opera house, conducting the »Ring« at the Bayreuth Festival. In addition, he was invited by the NHK Symphony (Japan’s most important orchestra) from 2014 to 2017 to conduct concert performances of Wagner’s »Ring« tetralogy in Tokyo. He will also perform Wagner’s »Tristan und Isolde« in the spring of 2020 and his »Parsifal« in 2021 with this orchestra. Following recordings of »Cavalleria rusticana« und »Il Tabarro«, the two one-act plays by Mascagni and Puccini, with the Dresdner Philharmonie, a recording of Beethoven’s »Fidelio« for the label Pentatone will be produced in the 2019/20 season.

Roderich Kreile

Roderich Kreile

To date, the office of Kreuzkantor (director of the choir) is one of the most prestigious and renowned offices in Protestant church music. The 28th Kreuzkantor since the Reformation is Roderich Kreile, who has been in office since 1997. He was born in 1956 and studied church music and choral conducting in Munich. As a church musician, Roderich Kreile soon received widespread attention beyond regional borders. He taught at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich between 1989 and 1996, his last position there being one of professor, and he conducted two university choirs. In 1994, he also took on the position of conductor of the Munich Philharmonic Choir. In addition, he accepted invitations to play the organ and to give lectures both in Germany and abroad. Kreuzkantor Roderich Kreile conducts all liturgical performances as well as the concerts and tours given by the Dresden Kreuzchor. He has developed a wide repertoire of religious and secular choral works with the Crucians from the history of music and has conducted many world premieres of contemporary compositions over the last years. He has also increased co-operation with world-famous orchestras and produced numerous radio and CD recordings. Whereas in earlier centuries, the Kreuzkantor’s duties were mostly limited to conducting music for the liturgical services, his tasks today extend far beyond the purely artistic responsibilities. As head of the Dresden Kreuzchor, Roderich Kreile also acts as a director on behalf of the city. Roderich Kreile is a member of the Saxon Academy of Arts, Vice-President of the Neue Bachgesellschaft (New Bach Society) and a member of the board of advisors for the International Heinrich Schütz Society.

It is fair to say that no other soloist of comparable international stature has done more to promote the cause of contemporary composers and new music for violin. Gidon Kremer has recorded over 120 albums, many of which have received prestigious international awards in recognition of their exceptional interpretative insights. His long list of honours and awards include the »Ernst von Siemens Musikpreis«, the Bundesverdienstkreuz, Moscow’s »Triumph Prize«, the »UNESCO Prize« and the »Una Vita Nella Musica – Artur Rubinstein« Prize. In 2016 Gidon Kremer has received a »Praemium Imperiale«. In 1997 Gidon Kremer founded the chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica to foster outstanding young musicians from the Baltic States. The ensemble tours extensively, and has recorded almost 30 albums. In 2016/17 Kremerata Baltica was on landmark tours through Middle East, North America, Europe, and Asia to celebrate the orchestra’s 20th anniversary. In the current season, Gidon Kremer will be honoured at the Konzerthaus Berlin with a major »Homage to Gidon Kremer« with over 15 events. He himself pays tribute to the revered composer Weinberg on his 100th anniversary with concerts in Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig, Linz, Warsaw, Seattle and San Francisco. Deutsche Grammophon is releasing two albums with orchestral and chamber music works by Weinberg, recorded by and with Gidon Kremer.

Klaus Mertens

Klaus Mertens

For four decades, bass-baritone Klaus Mertens’ performances encompassing early music through to the avant-garde, both in concert and on his more than 200 CD recordings, have been praised by the press as »gleaming supernaturally« (klassik.com), »wonderfully lean, with clear declamation« (MDR Figaro) and »unchangedly fresh and incredibly homogenous« (klassik.com). The possibilities of his voice and his awareness of being a »medium« in the creative act of an interpretation striving to be as authentic as possible make him one of the outstanding performers of his discipline. Early music is of particular importance in his artistic work, his natural baroque expression having been applauded across diverse national styles and repertories. A highlight and unique characteristic of his career is the recording series of the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach as well as performing them in concerts across the globe. It is unique in recording history for a singer to perform, in such an integral recording project, all parts of their voice type. The same holds true for the recording of the complete works of Dieterich Buxtehude, published a little later. Both recording series were made together with the splendid Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, conducted by Ton Koopman. He and his wife Tini Mathot – the producer of all these discs – have been close colleagues and friends of Klaus Mertens for four decades. Apart from Ton Koopman, Klaus Mertens has worked with nearly all renowned early music conductors as well as many international conductors of »modern« orchestras. He is a popular guest performer at major international festivals. For his own CD and concert projects, Klaus Mertens always strives to revive valuable long-lost or unknown works. He also passionately dedicates himself to music of the Renaissance, classical and romantic eras, as well as of contemporary composers, some of whom have written pieces especially for him. The Lied in its manifold varieties plays an important role and Mertens also enjoys novel, experimental forms of music-making, as well as increasingly taking on speaking parts.

Martin Mitterrutzner

Austrian tenor Martin Mitterrutzner was trained by Brigitte Fassbaender. He had his first experience on stage aged ten as First Boy in Mozart’s Magic Flute. In 2007 he was awarded the »Eberhard-Wächter Medal« of the Vienna State Opera. Martin Mitterrutzner was member of Tiroler Landestheater in Innsbruck before he joined the ensemble of Frankfurt Opera in the 2011/12 season. In 2011 he guested as Tamino in Mozart’s »Magic Flute« at Zurich’s Opera House. After his debut as Brighella in Strauss’ »Ariadne auf Naxos« under Daniel Harding at the Salzburg Festival in 2012, he gave another guest performance in summer 2013, this time as Ferrando in Sven Erich Bechtolf’s new production of »Così fan tutte« with Christoph Eschenbach on the rostrum. In 2016, Martin made his debut at Vienna’s Theater an der Wien in a new production of Don Giovanni. Since 2014, Martin Mitterrutzner has been a regular guest at Dresden’s Semperoper. The current focal point of his singing is definitely in the operatic field; however, Martin Mitterrutzner also possesses a wide musical repertoire, stretching from the works of Bach and Handel to contemporary composers such as Benjamin Britten and Sven David Sandström. He was a guest performer at concerts by the Munich Radio Orchestra under Jun Märkl, the Internationale Bachakademie with Helmuth Rilling, the MDR Choir under Howard Arman, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Choir and Symphony Orchestra, the Hessische Staatsorchester under Marc Piollet and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra under Kent Nagano as well as the Cleveland Orchestra under Franz Welser-Möst. The 2019/20 season sees Martin return to Dresden’s Semperoper as Tamino, star as Narraboth in a new staging of »Salome« at the Theater an der Wien and as Rosillion in Lehar’s »Merry Widow« at Vienna’s Volksoper as well as debut at the Glyndebourne Festival. Furthermore, he returns -together with Gerold Huber and a new recital program- to London’s Wigmore Hall and the Schubertiade Hohenems and can be heard in various concerts in Munich, Dresden, Linz or Kaiserslautern.

Munich Philharmonic

The Munich Philharmonic was founded in 1893, and since then, under the direction of renowned conductors, it has vastly enriched Munich’s musical life. Gustav Mahler conducted the orchestra in the world premières of his 4th and 8th Symphonies, and in November 1911, the world première of Mahler’s »Das Lied von der Erde« took place under Bruno Walter’s direction. Ferdinand Löwe led the first Bruckner concerts and established the orchestra’s Bruckner tradition, which was then gloriously continued by Siegmund von Hausegger and Oswald von Kabasta. During the Rudolf Kempe era the Philharmonic made its first tour to what was then the U.S.S.R. The legendary Bruckner concerts with general music director Sergiu Celibidache made a major contribution to the orchestra’s international reputation. The Munich Philharmonic made Zubin Mehta the first »conductor laureate« in the orchestra’s history. For the 100ths anniversary of the première of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 in Munich, chief conductor Christian Thielemann conducted two performances of this work. He was succeeded as chief conductor by Lorin Maazel, who held the position until his death in 2014. As of the 2015/16 season, the position of chief conductor of the Munich Philharmonic is held by Valery Gergiev. Tours have taken the Munich Philharmonic to numerous European cities as well as Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan and the USA. Programme highlights conceived by Valery Gergiev include performances of symphonic cycles by Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov as well as new formats, such as the MPHIL 360° festival. Concerts are regularly broadcast via live stream and on radio and TV. In September 2016, the first CD recordings under the orchestra’s own label, »MPHIL«, were released. By the 2020/21 season, all of Anton Bruckner’s symphonies will gradually be released. With »Spielfeld Klassik«, the Munich Philharmonic has developed a comprehensive music education programme for young and old. Under the motto of »MPhil on Site«, the Munich Philharmonic also leaves its home base, the Philharmonie Gasteig, to appear in unusual and varied locations, such as the Hofbräuhaus tavern as well as alpine meadows, clubs and industrial halls.

Olli Mustonen

Olli Mustonen

has a unique place on today’s music scene. Following the tradition of great masters such as Rachmaninov, Busoni and Enescu, Mustonen combines the roles of his musicianship as composer, pianist and conductor in an equal balance that is quite exceptional. During an illustrious career spanning 35 years, Mustonen has brought his extraordinary musical insight to many of world’s most significant musical centres, whether it be in a triple role or as soloist, conductor, recitalist or chamber musician. His intelligence and inspiring presence have led him towards many close musical connections with some of today’s most eminent musicians, and appearances with orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras, Royal Concertgebouw Orkest, Orchestre de Paris and all the London orchestras. Mustonen’s life as a composer is at the heart of his piano playing and conducting. He has a deeply held conviction that each performance must have the freshness of a first performance, so that audience and performer alike encounter the composer as a living contemporary. As a conductor, Mustonen has worked with all the major Finnish orchestras and many more around the globe. In recent years, Mustonen has conducted the world premieres of both of his large-scale orchestral works: Symphony No.1 »Tuuri« with the Tampere Philharmonic in 2012; and Symphony No.2 »Johannes Angelos« with the Helsinki Philharmonic in 2014. Under Mustonen’s baton, the 1st Symphony has gone on to receive further performances around the world. Mustonen also conducted the world premiere of his Sonata for Violin and Orchestra in 2014 with the Melbourne Symphony, and last season conducted the work with the Helsinki Philharmonic. As a recitalist, Mustonen works regularly with Pekka Kuusisto, with whom he premiered his Violin Sonata in 2013, and Steven Isserlis. One of Mustonen’s important musical friendships is with Rodion Shchedrin, who dedicated his Piano Concerto No. 5 to Mustonen and invited him to perform at his 70th, 75th and 80th birthday concerts.

Novus String Quartet

Established at the Korean National University of Arts in 2007, the Novus String Quartet is one of the leading chamber music ensembles in Korea, and first caused a sensation in Europe in 2012 when they earned the Second Prize in the string quartet category at the renowned ARD Music Competition. Two years later the quartet crowned itself with the First Prize at the Salzburg Mozart Competition. Ever since the quartet is filling the international concert halls and inspires audience and critics likewise. One year after its founding, the quartet celebrated inaugural success at the International Chamber Music Competition Osaka, where the musicians were awarded 3rd Prize. One year later, the quartet received also the 3rd Prize at the 2009 Chamber Music Competition in Lyon. From 2011 to 2014, the Novus String Quartet studied with the Christoph Poppen and Hariolf Schlichtig at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich and in the season of 2014/15 at the Hochschule für Musik in Lübeck with Heime Müller, former member of the Artemis Quartet. Since June 2015, the Belcea Quartet has been the mentor of the Novus String Quartet. Their first CD, »Novus Quartet #1«, was released at the French Label Aparté in Spring 2016, presenting works from Beethoven, Webern and the rarely played Korean composer Isang Yun.

Aoife O'Donovan

Aoife O'Donovan

Called »a vocalist of unerring instinct« by the »New York Times«, Aoife O’Donovan is one of the most sought after vocalists and songwriters of her generation and her career has allowed her to collaborate with some of the most eminent names in music across a wide variety of genres. The most recent example is I’m With Her, the band comprised of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and O’Donovan. Their debut album »See You Around«, released in February 2018, has garnered praise from »NPR«, who instantly hailed the collection as »willfully open-hearted«, and »The Guardian« called their sound both »ethereal and purposeful«. As a solo artist, O’Donovan has released two studio albums. »In the Magic Hour« (2016), a 10-song album full of the singer’s honeyed vocals mixed with gauzy, frictionless sounds: splashing cymbals, airy harmonies, and the leisurely baritone musings of an electric guitar. »Mojo« described the record as »exhilarating and exploratory«, while the »New York Times« named »The King of All Birds« one of the Best Songs of 2016. Aoife toured 2016 in support of the album and ended that year releasing a live album »Man In A Neon Coat: Live From Cambridge« with her touring band. Her debut solo album, 2013’s »Fossils«, is a moody collection of original songs with a country lilt. The record received critical acclaim and was featured on a number of »Best of 2013« lists including »NPR Music«, »American Songwriter«, »New York Magazine«, and »No Depression«. O’Donovan spent the preceding decade as co-founder and lead singer of the band Crooked Still, and as a featured vocalist on »The Goat Rodeo Sessions«, the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile. Throughout her career, she has also collaborated with artists such as Alison Krauss and jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas, and is currently a member of the house band on the radio variety show »Live From Here«. Spring 2020 will bring a new program from Aoife entitled »Songs and Strings« where, alongside a string quartet, she will perform the song cycle »Bull Frogs Croon«. Written and developed with Jeremy Kittel and Teddy Abrams, the piece uses stunning text by the late and former Poet Laureate of Oregon, Peter Sears, which premiered in 2015 at the Britt Festival. The remainder of the evening will mix songs from her expansive career with a few traditional favorites.

Hans-Christoph Rademann

The conductor Hans-Christoph Rademann is an exceptionally versatile artist with a wide-ranging repertoire, who devotes himself with equal passion to the performance and rediscovery of early music and to the premiering and promotion of contemporary music. Born in Dresden and raised in Schwarzenberg (Saxony), he was influenced from an early age by the great central German tradition of music and church music directors. He was a member of the famous Kreuzchor, and studied choral and orchestral conducting at the Musikhochschule Dresden. During his studies he founded the Dresdner Kammerchor, developing it into a top international choir; he remains its director today. Impressive evidence of the quality of this artistic collaboration is the highly-acclaimed recording of the Complete Works of Heinrich Schütz on the Stuttgart Carus-Verlag label, which reaches its conclusion in 2018. Since June 2013 Hans-Christoph Rademann has also been Akademie Director of the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart. In addition he works with leading choirs and ensembles on the international concert scene. From 1999 to 2004 he was chief conductor of the Norddeutscher Rundfunk Chorus, and from 2007 to 2015 chief conductor of the RIAS Kammerchor. Regular invitations as a guest conductor take him to the Collegium Vocale Gent, the Akademie für Alte Musik, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, the Concerto Köln, the Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest, the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, etc. Hans-Christoph Rademann has received numerous prizes and honours for his artistic work. These include the »Johann Walter Plakette« of the Sächsischer Musikrat (2014), the Saxon Constitutional Medal (2008), the Patrons’ Award and Art Prize of the City of Dresden (1994 and 2014), and the »Preis der Europäischen Kirchenmusik« Schwäbisch Gmünd (2016).

Orchestras

Staatskapelle Dresden

Staatskapelle Dresden

Founded by Prince Elector Moritz von Sachsen in 1548, the Staatskapelle Dresden is one of the oldest orchestras in the world and thus steeped in tradition. Over its long history many distinguished conductors and internationally celebrated instrumentalists have left their mark on this one-time court orchestra. Previous directors include Heinrich Schütz, Johann Adolf Hasse, Carl Maria von Weber and Richard Wagner. The list of prominent conductors of the last 100 years includes Ernst von Schuch, Fritz Reiner, Fritz Busch, Karl Böhm, Joseph Keilberth, Rudolf Kempe, Otmar Suitner, Kurt Sanderling, Herbert Blomstedt and Giuseppe Sinopoli. The orchestra was directed by Bernard Haitink from 2002-2004 and most recently by Fabio Luisi from 2007-2010. Principal Conductor since the 2012/2013 season has been Christian Thielemann. In 2016 the former Principal Conductor Herbert Blomstedt received the title Conductor Laureate. The only person to previously hold this title was Sir Colin Davis, from 1990 until his death in 2013. Myung-Whun Chung has been Principal Guest Conductor since the 2012/2013 season.
Richard Strauss and the Staatskapelle were closely linked for more than sixty years. Nine of the composer’s operas were premiered in Dresden, including »Salome«, »Elektra« and »Der Rosenkavalier«, while Strauss’s »Alpine Symphony« was dedicated to the orchestra. Countless other famous composers have written works either dedicated to the orchestra or first performed in Dresden. In 2007 the Staatskapelle reaffirmed this tradition by introducing the annual position of »Capell-Compositeur«. Following on from Hans Werner Henze, Sofia Gubaidulina, Wolfgang Rihm, György Kurtág, Arvo Pärt and Peter Eötvös, the German composer Aribert Reimann holds this title for the 2019/2020 season. As »Capell-Virtuos« the cellist Sol Gabetta takes part in various concerts.
The Staatskapelle’s home is the Semperoper, where it performs around 250 operas and ballets each season. In addition, the ensemble presents another 50 symphonic and chamber concerts at the opera house, as well as playing at various musical events at Dresden’s Frauenkirche. As one of the world’s most celebrated and popular symphony orchestras, the Staatskapelle regularly travels abroad to the world’s leading classical venues. Since 2013 it has been the resident orchestra of the Salzburg Easter Festival, whose Artistic Director is Christian Thielemann.
As patron orchestra of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, the Staatskapelle supports the nurturing of young talent. Also active at the local level, it is a partner of Meetingpoint Music Messiaen in the double city of Görlitz-Zgorzelec and, in 2010, helped found the International Shostakovich Festival in Gohrisch, which is the first annual event dedicated to the music and life of Dmitri Shostakovich.
At a ceremony in Brussels in 2007 the Staatskapelle became the first – and so far only – orchestra to be awarded the »European Prize for the Preservation of the World’s Musical Heritage«.

Schumann Quartett

The Schumann Quartet has reached a stage where anything is possible, because it has dispensed with certainties. This also has consequences for audiences, which from one concert to the next have to be prepared for all eventualities: »A work really develops only in a live performance,« the quartet says. »That is ›the real thing‹, because we ourselves never know what will happen. On the stage, all imitation disappears, and you automatically become honest with yourself. Then you can create a bond with the audience – communicate with it in music.« This live situation will gain an added energy in the near future: Sabine Meyer, Menahem Pressler, Andreas Ottensamer and Anna Lucia Richter are among the quartet's current partners. A highlight in the 19/20 season is its three-year residency at the Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center in New York City, which began back in December 2016. Furthermore, the quartet will go on tour twice in the US, will give guest performances at festivals in Germany, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands and will also perform concerts in the big musical metropolises of London, Munich, Madrid, Hamburg and Berlin. In addition, the ensemble is part of the opera production »Inferno« at Opera Frankfurt and is looking forward to their annual concerts as part of its long-term residency at the Robert-Schumann-Saal in Düsseldorf.
Its album »Intermezzo« has been hailed enthusiastically both at home and abroad and received the award »OPUS Klassik«. It is celebrated as a worthy successor to its award-winning »Landscapes« album, in which in which the quartet traces its own roots by combining works of Haydn, Bartók, Takemitsu and Pärt. Among other prices, the latter received the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, five »Diapason d’or« and was selected as »Editor's Choice« by the »BBC Music Magazine«. For its previous CD »Mozart Ives Verdi«, the Schumann Quartet was accorded the 2016 »Newcomer Award» at the BBC Music Magazine Awards in London.
The three brothers Mark, Erik and Ken Schumann have been playing together since their earliest childhood. In 2012, they were joined by violist Liisa Randalu, who was born in the Estonian capital, Tallinn, and grew up in Karlsruhe, Germany. Although the individual personalities clearly manifest themselves, a common space arises in every musical work in a process of spiritual metamorphosis. The quartet's openness and curiosity may be partly the result of the formative influence exerted on it by teachers such as Eberhard Feltz, the Alban Berg Quartet, or partners such as Menahem Pressler. Teachers and musical partners, prestigious prices, CD releases – it is always tempting to speculate on what factors have led to many people viewing the Schumann Quartet as one of the best in the world. They charmingly sidestep any attempt to categorise their sound, approach or style, and let the concerts speak for themselves.

Jan Vogler has been working successfully with the Sony Classical label since 2003 and in the course of this cooperation around 20 CDs have been produced so far. The CD »Songbook« was his most recent collaboration with the Finnish guitarist Ismo Eskelinen. Previous recordings include a recording of double concertos for violin and violoncello by Rihm, Brahms and Harbison, together with violinist Mira Wang, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conductor Peter Oundjian as well as Tchaikovsky’s »Rococo Variation« with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrés Orozco-Estrada.

Zurich Chamber Orchestra

Founded in 1945 by Edmond de Stoutz, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra is now one of the leading ensembles of its kind. Under the direction of Edmond de Stoutz and later Howard Griffiths and Muhai Tang, the orchestra won international recognition. In the years of the world-acclaimed Principal Conductor Sir Roger Norrington, from 2011 to 2015, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra did much to establish and enhance its excellent reputation. Since the 2016/17 season, the orchestra has been led by Music Director Daniel Hope. Regular invitations to international festivals, performances in Europe's leading centers of music, concert tours on almost all continents and numerous critically acclaimed CD releases testify to the worldwide renown of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.

The orchestra is also notable for its work with musicians from other fields such as jazz, folk music and popular entertainment. The concerts for children of all ages, outreach work with children and young people and encouragement of young instrumentalists are in every way as important to the Zurich Chamber Orchestra as its close and continuing collaboration with world-renowned soloists.
