John Adams

John Adams

Composer, conductor, and creative thinker – John Adams occupies a unique position in the world of music. His works stand out among contemporary classical compositions for their depth of expression, brilliance of sound, and the profoundly humanist nature of their themes; his stage compositions, all in collaboration with director Peter Sellars, have transformed the genre of contemporary music theatre. Spanning more than three decades, works such as »Harmonielehre«, »Shaker Loops«, »El Niño« and »Nixon in China« are among the most performed of all contemporary classical music. 

As a conductor he has led the world’s major orchestras, programming his own works with a wide variety of repertoire ranging from Beethoven, Mozart and Debussy to Ives, Carter and Ellington. Among his honorary doctorates are those from Yale, Harvard, Northwestern and Cambridge universities and from The Juilliard School. A provocative writer, he is author of the highly acclaimed autobiography »Hallelujah Junction« and is a frequent contributor to »The New York Times Book Review«. Since 2009 Adams has been Creative Chair of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Born and raised in New England, Adams learned the clarinet from his father and played in marching bands and community orchestras during his formative years. He began composing age ten and his first orchestral pieces were performed while he was still a teenager. In 2017 Adams celebrated his 70th birthday with festivals of his music in Europe and the US, including special retrospectives at London’s Barbican, Cité de la Musique in Paris, and in Amsterdam, New York and Geneva, among other cities. In 2019 he was the recipient of both Spain’s BBVA ​»Frontiers of Knowledge« award and Holland’s »Erasmus Prize« ​for »notable contributions to European culture, society and social science.«

Brentano String Quartet

Since its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has appeared throughout the world to popular and critical acclaim. »Passionate, uninhibited and spellbinding«, raves the London Independent; the »New York Times« extols its »luxuriously warm sound [and] yearning lyricism.« Since 2014, the Brentano Quartet has served as Artists in Residence at Yale University. The Quartet also currently serves as the collaborative ensemble for the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Formerly, they were Artists in Residence at Princeton University for many years.

The Quartet had its first European tour in 1997, and was honored in the U.K. with the »Royal Philharmonic Award« for »Most Outstanding Debut«. In addition to their interest in performing very old music, the Brentano Quartet frequently collaborates with contemporary composers Recent commissions include a piano quintet by Vijay Iyer, a work by Eric Moe (with Christine Brandes, soprano), and a viola quintet by Felipe Lara (performed with violist Hsin-Yun Huang).

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.

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).

He has collaborated with directors such as Tim Burton, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, Rob Minkoff, Guillermo del Toro, Brian De Palma, James Ponsoldt and David O’Russell. Beginning with his first score on Tim Burton’s »Pee-wee’s Big Adventure«, Elfman has scored over 100 films, including: »Milk« (»Oscar«-nominated), »Good Will Hunting« (»Oscar«-nominated), »Big Fish« (»Oscar«-nominated), »Men in Black« (»Oscar«-nominated), »Edward Scissorhands«, »Batman«, »To Die For«, »The Nightmare Before Christmas«, »Alice in Wonderland«, »Silver Linings Playbook«, »American Hustle«, »Avengers: Age of Ultron«, »Spiderman«, »A Simple Plan«, »Midnight Run«, »Sommersby«, »Dolores Claiborne», and the Errol Morris documentaries »The Unknown Known«, and »Standard Operating Procedure«. Elfman’s other scores include the Warner Bros. blockbuster »Justice League«, Gus Van Sant’s »Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far On Foot«, »The Grinch« for Universal, Tim Burton’s live action remake of Disney’s »Dumbo«, and the latest installment from Sony Pictures »Men In Black«: International starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. Upcoming for Elfman is the Universal Pictures’ family comedy »The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle« starring Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland.  

A native of Los Angeles, Elfman grew up loving film music. He travelled the world as a young man, absorbing its musical diversity. He helped found the band Oingo Boingo, and came to the attention of a young Tim Burton, who asked him to write the score for »Pee-wee’s Big Adventure«. 34 years later, the two have forged one of the most fruitful composer-director collaborations in film history. In addition to his film work, Elfman wrote the iconic theme music for the television series »The Simpsons« and »Desperate Housewives«.  

Elfman has expanded his writing to composing orchestral concert works which include: »Serenada Schizophrana«, a symphony commissioned by the American Composer’s Orchestra, which premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2005, »Rabbit and Rogue«, for the American Ballet Theater choreographed by Twyla Tharp, performed at The Metropolitan Opera house in 2008, and »IRIS« for Cirque du Soleil directed by French choreographer Philippe Decouflé. In 2011, Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton live orchestral concert, premiered at Royal Albert Hall, and has since toured around the world and won two »Emmys«. In 2017 Elfman premiered his first violin concerto in Prague, which was performed by the Czech National Orchestra. 2019, his first Piano Quartet commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet premiered at the Berlin Philharmonie.

Daniele Gatti

Daniele Gatti graduated as a composer and orchestra conductor at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan. He is Music Director of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and he holds the same position at the Orchestra Mozart. He is also Artistic Advisor of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO). He was Chief Conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (RCO) in Amsterdam and he previously held prestigious roles at important musical institutions like the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the Royal Opera House of London, the Teatro Comunale di Bologna, and Zurich’s Opernhaus. The Berliner Philharmoniker, the Wiener Philharmoniker, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, and the Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala are just a few of the renowned symphonic institutions he works with. Some of the numerous and important new productions he has conducted include the »Falstaff« staged by Robert Carsen (in London, Milan, and Amsterdam); the »Parsifal« staged by Stefan Herheim opening the 2008 Bayreuther Festspiele (one of the very few Italian conductors to have been invited to the Wagnerian festival); the »Parsifal« staged by François Girard at the Metropolitan Opera in New York; four operas at the Salzburger Festspiele (»Elektra«, »La bohème«, »Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg«, »ll Trovatore«).

The year 2016 saw the beginning of a three-year concert cycle named »RCO meets Europe«, that involved 28 member states of the European Union and it included the project »Side by Side«, a project allowing musicians from local youth orchestras to perform the first musical number of the program next to the members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Maestro Gatti, thus fostering an incredibly fruitful human and musical exchange. The Italian appointment took place in Turin at the Auditorium of the Lingotto building.

Daniele Gatti was awarded the »Premio Franco Abbiati« from Italian music critics as best conductor in 2015, and in 2016 he was awarded the »Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur« from the French Republic for his work as Musical Director of the Orchestre National de France. Under Sony Classical he has recorded works by Debussy and Stravinsky with the Orchestre National de France, and a DVD of Wagner’s Parsifal staged at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Under the label RCO Live he has recorded Berlioz’s »Symphonie Fantastiqu«e, Mahler’s First, Second and Fourth Symphonies, a DVD of Stravinsky’s »Le Sacre du Printemps« together with Debussy's »Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un Faune« and »La Mer«, a DVD of Strauss's »Salome« performed at the Dutch National Opera, a CD of Bruckner's Symphony n. 9 together with the Prelude and the Karfreitagszauber (Good Friday Music) from Wagner's Parsifal.

Hagen Quartet

Hagen Quartet

The Hagen Quartet celebrates its 40th anniversary in the 2020/21 season, with concert programs featuring the ten great string quartets and the clarinet quintet by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the piano quintets by Dmitri Shostakovich and Robert Schumann, the string quintet by Franz Schubert and the clarinet quintet by Jörg Widmann. This combination of Mozart's quartets and quintets with guest musicians will be performed especially in the concert series of the Hagen Quartet in the Vienna Konzerthaus. This season, the four musicians will tour to London, Brussels, Munich, Berlin, Amsterdam, Wroclaw, Barcelona, Madrid, Turin, Hamburg, the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg, the Salzburg Festival and the Lucerne Festival, to name but a few cities and festivals.

The Hagen Quartet will travel again to the United States and Japan. The Hagen Quartet’s unprecedented 3 1/2-decade career began in 1981. Its early years, marked by a series of prizes in chamber music competitions and an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon that was to produce around forty-five recordings over the following twenty years, enabled the group to work its way through the immensely vast repertoire for string quartet in which this ensemble’s distinctive profile has emerged. Subsequent recordings for myrios classics with Brahms' Clarinet Quintet together with Jörg Widmann and with Mozart's string quartets were highly praised by the international press and received prizes such as the »ECHO Klassik« in Germany and the »Diapason d’Or« in France. In 2019 a recording with the 3rd string quartet and the piano quintet by Brahms together with Kirill Gerstein has been released and in autumn 2020 a recording with the Clarinet Quintets of Mozart and Jörg Widmann (first recording). In January 2019, the Hagen Quartet was awarded the »Concertgebouw Prijs« for the artistic appeal it has radiated over many years and the contribution it has made to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Collaborations with artistic personalities such as György Kurtág and the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt are as important to the Hagen Quartet as its concert appearances with performers including Maurizio Pollini, Mitsuko Uchida, Krystian Zimerman, Heinrich Schiff, Jörg Widmann, Kirill Gerstein, Sol Gabetta, Gautier Capuçon and Igor Levit. The ensemble’s concert repertoire and discography feature attractive and intelligently arranged programmes embracing the entire history of the string quartet genre, from its pre-Haydn beginnings right through to Kurtág. The Hagen Quartet also works closely with composers of its own generation: not only reviving existing works, but also commissioning and premiering new pieces. Recently, Myrios Classics released a recording featuring Brahms’ String Quartet No. 3 and his Piano Quintet, with Kirill Gerstein as guest pianist.

Many young string quartets regard the Hagen Quartet as a model in terms of sound quality, stylistic variety, ensemble playing and serious commitment to the works and composers of the genre. As teachers and mentors at the Salzburg Mozarteum and the Hochschule in Basel, as well as in international masterclasses, the quartet’s members pass on their great wealth of experience to younger colleagues. The Hagen Quartet plays on old Italian master Instruments.

Helsinki Baroque Orchestra

Helsinki Baroque Orchestra

For twenty years, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra’s performances and recordings have captivated audiences with their potent combination of emotional eloquence and infectious vitality. Their programmes frequently include first modern performances of unpublished or reconstructed masterpieces, and also shed unexpected and often provocative new light on more familiar works. Their music-making has contributed to the ensemble’s reputation as a major exponent of German and Baltic music.

At home, groundbreaking productions of Monteverdi, Handel, Hasse, and Koželuch operas have earned the orchestra wide recognition. Since 2011, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra’s monthly series at the Helsinki Musiikkitalo has reached a large, new, and enthusiastic public. A visionary selection of repertoire and guest artists has ignited the audience in an unprecedented way, and in the process catalysed early music’s elevation to something of a cult status in Finland. Recurring soloists and guest directors include Max Emanuel Cenčić, Franco Fagioli, Isabelle Faust, Reinhard Goebel, Werner Güra, Erich Höbarth, René Jacobs, Sophie Karthäuser, Julia Lezhneva, Riccardo Minasi, Enrico Onofri, Sonia Prina, Valer Sabadus, Carolyn Sampson, Skip Sempé, and Dmitry Sinkovsky.

Helsinki Baroque’s sound has enthralled listeners from the Cologne Philharmonie to Tokyo’s Suntory Hall and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and at major festivals such as Bergen, Bremen, Rheingau, and Jerusalem. Equally at home in more intimate spaces, the orchestra has launched its own midsummer festival in the idyllic setting of Janakkala’s medieval stone church.

Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra introduced its new brand identity in 2012, coinciding with the arrival of our Music Director Jaap van Zweden. The new identity represents the swinging movements of the baton in the hand of the conductor rather like a wand in the hands of a wizard, creating and orchestrating magical experiences that are at once elevating, enriching and enchanting. 

The logo symbolises the HK Phil stepping towards a new tomorrow, continuing to cast new spells in our symphonic endeavour.  The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) is recognised as Asia’s foremost classical orchestra. Presenting more than 150 concerts over a 44-week season, the HK Phil attracts more than 200,000 music lovers annually. In 2019, the HK Phil received the prestigious »Gramophone Award« (Orchestra of the Year) – the first orchestra in Asia to receive this distinction. Jaap van Zweden, one of today’s most sought-after conductors, has been the orchestra’s Music Director since the 2012/13 concert season, a position he will continue to hold until at least 2022. Maestro van Zweden is also Music Director of the New York Philharmonic since the 2018/19 season. Yu Long has been Principal Guest Conductor since the 2015/16 season.  

Under the dynamic leadership of Jaap van Zweden, the HK Phil has attained new heights of artistic excellence, garnering international critical acclaim. The orchestra successfully completed a four-year journey through Wagner’s Ring Cycle, performing and recording one opera from the cycle each year from 2015 to 2018. The concert performances and live Naxos recordings were enthusiastically received by audiences and praised by critics at home and abroad.

Thanks to a significant subsidy from the Hong Kong SAR Government and long-term funding from Principal Patron Swire, the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and other supporters, the HK Phil presents an annual schedule of core classical repertoire and innovative popular programming, extensive education and community programmes, and collaborations with, among others, Opera Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Arts Festival and the Hong Kong Ballet. Conductors and soloists who have recently performed with the orchestra include Vladimir Ashkenazy, Joshua Bell, Charles Dutoit, Christoph Eschenbach, Matthias Goerne, Stephen Hough, Evgeny Kissin, Lang Lang, Yo-Yo Ma, Ning Feng, Leonard Slatkin and Yuja Wang.

The HK Phil promotes the work of Hong Kong and Chinese composers through an active commissioning programme, and has released recordings on the Naxos label featuring Tan Dun and Bright Sheng conducting their own compositions. Its acclaimed education and community engagement programmes in schools, hospitals and outdoor spaces bring music into the hearts of tens of thousands of children and families every year.

Jacobsen is Co-Artistic Director and conductor of The Knights, and also serves as the Music Director for the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and the Greater Bridgeport Symphony. Jacobsen founded the adventurous orchestra The Knights with his brother, violinist Colin Jacobsen, to foster the intimacy and camaraderie of chamber music on the orchestral stage. As conductor, Jacobsen has led the »consistently inventive, infectiously engaged indie ensemble« (»New York Times«) at Central Park’s Naumburg Orchestral Concerts, Celebrate Brooklyn!

Under Jacobsen’s baton, The Knights have developed an extensive recording collection, which includes the critically acclaimed albums »Azul«, with longtime collaborator Yo-Yo Ma, as well as the Prokofiev Concerto in the Grammy-nominated Gil Shaham album »1930s Violin Concertos«. The Knights issued three albums for Sony Classical including »Jan Vogler and The Knights Experience: Live from New York«; »New Worlds«, and an all-Beethoven album, as well as the »smartly programmed« (»National Public Radio«) »A Second in Silence« on the Ancalagon label. Jacobsen’s first release on Warner Classics was »The Ground Beneath Our Feet. We Are The Knights«, a documentary film produced by Thirteen/WNET, premiered in September 2011.

A dedicated chamber musician, Jacobsen is a member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, participating in residencies and performances at the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, and across the U.S., Central Asia, Middle East, Far East, and Europe.

Juilliard415

Now embarked on its second decade, Juilliard’s full-scholarship Historical Performance program offers a comprehensive two-year immersion in music of the 17th and 18th centuries on historical instruments. Thanks to the generous support of Bruce and Suzie Kovner, the Historical Performance graduate program is tuition-free. Along with a high-profile concert season of opera, orchestral, and chamber music at the level of technical excellence and musical integrity for which Juilliard is renowned, this intensive program also offers an academic curriculum focused on the study of historical sources, theory, and practice. Its faculty is made up of many of the leading performers and scholars in the field. 

Juilliard415, the school’s principal period-instrument ensemble, has made significant contributions to musical life in New York and beyond, bringing major figures in the field of early music to lead performances of both rare and canonical works by composers of the 17th and 18th centuries. The many distinguished guests who have led Juilliard415 include Harry Bicket, William Christie, Monica Huggett, Nicholas McGegan, Rachel Podger, Jordi Savall, and Masaaki Suzuki. Juilliard415 has now performed on five continents, with notable appearances at the Boston Early Music Festival, Leipzig Bachfest, and Utrecht Early Music Festival (where Juilliard was the first-ever conservatory in residence), and most recently its second 10-concert tour of New Zealand.

Recent highlights include performances with William Christie and Les Arts Florissants at the Philharmonie de Paris, Handel’s »Rinaldo« conducted by Nicholas McGegan, the Juilliard415 debut of Pablo Heras-Casado in a program of music from the Spanish Baroque, and the second of a continuing series of side-by-side collaborations with Philharmonia Baroque in San Francisco and with its frequent musical collaborator, the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.

In collaboration with Juilliard’s Ellen and James S. Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts, Juilliard415 has performed major oratorios and baroque operas every year since its founding, including a rare fully-staged production of Rameau’s »Hippolyte et Aricie« during the 2017/18 season. During the 2018/19 season, the ensemble presented Purcell’s »Dido and Aeneas« at Opera Holland Park in London and the Royal Opera House of Versailles.

Graduates of Juilliard Historical Performance have gone on to join many leading period-instrument ensembles, including Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, the Handel and Haydn Society, Les Arts Florissants, Mercury Chamber Orchestra, and Portland Baroque Orchestra. They have also launched their own new ensembles like Ruckus, The Sebastians, House of Time, New York Baroque Incorporated, and New Vintage Baroque.

Sir Simon Rattle laid the foundation stone for this ensemble with the wish to conduct a joint concert by the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic orchestras on his 50th birthday: making music together was so fruitful that the spontaneous desire to continue this experience arose. From this idea the »Chamber Orchestra Vienna - Berlin« was born. Since then, concert masters, soloists and section leaders of the two orchestras have come together regularly to create a unique artistic exchange between two legendary Philharmonic orchestras and playing cultures, which is equally exhilarating for the audience and for the musicians.

Artistic director and concert master of the Chamber Orchestra Vienna – Berlin has been Rainer Honeck (concert master of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra since 1984 and concert master of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra since 1992) from the beginning. The most sought-after soloists of our time such as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Jonas Kaufmann, Yuja Wang, Thomas Quasthoff, Yuri Bashmet, Yefim Bronfman, Antoine Tamestit, Denis Matsuev, Rudolf Buchbinder, Daniel Müller-Schott and Gautier Capuçon appreciate their exceptionally fine interaction with the Chamber Orchestra Vienna – Berlin.

Guest performances have taken the ensemble to important international concert halls from Moscow to Amsterdam, from Milan to Helsinki. The Chamber Orchestra Vienna – Berlin celebrated its American debut in 2019. The concerts there formed the end of a brilliant tour with Anne-Sophie Mutter, which took place in 25 locations, among others Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and Wiener Musikverein, as well as in Athens, Madrid, Lucerne and Berlin.

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.

Aoife O'Donovan

Singers

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.

ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra

The ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra is a top orchestra of world renown; it defines itself in the Vienna orchestral tradition. Marin Alsop took over as Chief Conductor in September 2019. The Vienna RSO is known for its exceptional, bold programming. By combining nineteenth-century repertoire with contemporary pieces and rarely performed works of other periods, the programming often places Romantic era classics in unexpected contexts.

The Vienna RSO regularly performs in two subscription series in Vienna, in the Musikverein and the Konzerthaus. In addition, it appears every year at major Austrian and international festivals. The orchestra has close ties to the Salzburg Festival, musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst and Wien Modern. Tours to Japan and China are a regular part of the Vienna RSO schedule as well. The orchestra has also played concerts in Thailand and Taiwan as well as the USA, South America and Germany at the Berlin, Cologne and Essen Philharmonic Halls and at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg among others. Since 2007, the Vienna RSO has successfully collaborated with the Theater an der Wien, thereby gaining an excellent reputation as an opera orchestra. Yet the Vienna RSO is also entirely at home in the film music genre. For example, in 2012, the Vienna RSO recorded the soundtrack to the film »Die Vermessung der Welt« (»Measuring the World«). Every year, the orchestra is conducted by composers who have won an »Oscar« for Best Achievement in Music written for Motion Pictures at the »Hollywood in Vienna« Gala.

Most of the Vienna RSO performances are broadcast on the radio. Through its growing presence on television, as well as its collaboration with the FM4 young people's station, the Vienna RSO is constantly reaching out to new music lovers.

Leonard Bernstein, Christoph von Dohnányi, Christoph Eschenbach, Michael Gielen, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Barbara Hannigan, Jakub Hrůša, Susanna Mälkki, Andris Nelsons, Kirill Petrenko, and Giuseppe Sinopoli are among the guests who have stood on the podium of the Vienna RSO. Composers Luciano Berio, Péter Eötvös, Hans Werner Henze, Ernst Krenek, and Krzysztof Penderecki have all conducted the orchestra. Internationally renowned soloists who make regular appearances with the Vienna RSO include Renaud und Gautier Capuçon, Christian Gerhaher, Martin Grubinger, Hilary Hahn, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Gidon Kremer, Lang Lang, Anna Netrebko, Heinrich Schiff, and Christian Tetzlaff.

The broad scope of the Vienna RSO’s recording activities includes works in every genre, among them many first recordings that represent modern Austrian classicists and contemporary Austrian composers. This is how the Neue Musik aus Österreich series of CD recordings came about. Orchestral works by Friedrich Cerha, the recording of all nine symphonies by Egon Wellesz and first recordings of music by Erich Zeisl are all part of this series. In 2012 and 2016 two CD sets my RSO I and my RSO II with twenty-four and twelve CDs were released. In 2019 the Live-recording of Gottfried von Einem‘s Der Prozess, performed at the Salzburg Festival 2018, was awarded the »Diapason d’Or« and the »Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik«.

The Vienna RSO has also launched a broad-based educational program, comprising workshops for children and young people, as well as the Inside my RSO, my RSO music lab, and Classical Temptation concert series. Highly talented musicians have been admitted to the orchestra’s own academy since 1997 and the Vienna RSO plays regularly for the final concerts of the conducting classes at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. The Vienna RSO grew out of Austrian radio’s main orchestra in 1969. Under the leadership of its chief conductors, Milan Horvat, Leif Segerstam, Lothar Zagrosek, Pinchas Steinberg, Dennis Russell Davies, Bertrand de Billy, and Cornelius Meister, the orchestra has continuously expanded its repertoire, gaining growing international renown.

Marialy Pacheco

Marialy Pacheco

The biggest appreciation so far of Marialy Pacheco’s qualities has been the winning of the »Montreux Solo Piano Competition 2012«. She is the first woman to win this prize in 15 years history of the competition. In the explanation of the decision Jury president Leszek Możdżer said: »Deciding between the three contenders was tough. In the end, the contestants’ joy in performing and her authenticity guided our decision making.«

Born in Havana 1983, Marialy Pacheco was raised in a musical family and began piano studies from an early age at the Conservatorio Alejandro García Caturla. At 15 she attended the Escuela Nacional de Artes, followed by three years of composition studies under Tulio Peramo Cabrera at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana.

In 2002 she won the Cuban »Jo Jazz Competition«, with Grammy award-winner Chucho Valdés presiding over the jury. Two years later she recorded her first album »Bendiciones«. On the occasion of the 185-year-old jubilee of Bösendorfer, Marialy Pacheco guested in 2013 as the only Jazz-act, beside classical stars like Valentina Lisitsa and Maria Mazo in the Musikverein Wien. In 2014, Marialy was announced as first female jazz pianist worldwide to be an official »Bösendorfer Artist«.

In spring 2014, her new album »Introducing« (Neuklang/Edel:Kultur) was released. After several solo albums, it is a trio album, with Juan Camilo Villa Robles on bass and Miguel Altamar de la Torre (both from colombia) on drums. As »special guests« she got the honor to get german trumpet player and »Echo Jazz« winner Joo Kraus and moroccan Rhani Krija, percussionist of Sting. In August 2014, she gave her debut as classical pianist and showed her musical variety, when she performed Bach’s g-moll concerto with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Brisbane/Australia, conducted by Gustavo Gimeno.

Marialy Pacheco has performed at national and international festivals like Montreux Jazz Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Piano City Milano, Havana Jazz Festival, and Beethovenfest Bonn, among others. In April 2017 Marialy released her new album »DUETS« – an intimate and many-faceted album to which Marialy invited her favourite musicians and friends like Hamilton de Holanda, Omar Sosa, Joo Kraus, Rhani Krija, Miguel Zenón and Max Mutzke.

In December 2018, Marialy signed with Ellora Managament in the US for worldwide management and representation among artists like HIROMI and Ahmad Jamal. Marialy Pacheco is the only female pianist in the currently row of famous Cuban jazz piano players like Roberto Fonseca, Omar Sosa or Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra

Orchestras

Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra

Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra

The Philharmonic State Orchestra is Hamburg’s largest and oldest orchestra, looking back on many years of musical history. When the Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Hamburg Municipal Theatre merged in 1934, two tradition-steeped orchestras combined. Philharmonic concerts have been performed in Hamburg since 1828, artists such as Clara Schumann, Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms being regular guests of the Philharmonic Society. The history of the opera company goes back even further: Hamburg has been home to musical theatre since 1678, even if a regular opera or theatre orchestra was only formed later. To this day, the Philharmonic State Orchestra has embodied the sound of the Hansa City, a concert and opera orchestra in one. During its long history, the orchestra encountered great artist personalities.

Apart from composers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, such as Telemann, Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Mahler, Prokofiev and Stravinsky, since the 20th century chief conductors such as Karl Muck, Joseph Keilberth, Eugen Jochum, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Horst Stein, Aldo Ceccato, Christoph von Dohnányi, Gerd Albrecht, Ingo Metzmacher and Simone Young have shaped the orchestra’s sound. Renowned conductors of the pre-war era such as Otto Klemperer, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Bruno Walter, Karl Böhm and Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt gave brilliant performances, as did outstanding conductors of our times: suffice it to mention Christian Thielemann, Semyon Bychkov, Kirill Petrenko, Sir Neville Marriner, Valery Gergiev and Sir Roger Norrington.

Starting with the 2015/16 season, Kent Nagano has taken on the position of Hamburg’s General Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Philharmonic State Orchestra and the Hamburg State Opera. In his first season Kent Nagano initiated a new project, the Philharmonic Academy, focusing on experimentation and chamber music. In 2016 Nagano and the Philharmonic undertook a successful three-week concert tour in South America, a tour of Spain followed in 2019. Since 2017 Kent Nagano and the Philharmonic State Orchestra have continued the traditional Philharmonic Concerts at the new Elbphilharmonie, for which they commissioned Jörg Widmann to compose the oratorio ARCHE, which was given its world premiere during the hall’s opening festivities. The concert recording has been released at ECM.

The Philharmonic State Orchestra offers approximately 35 concerts per season and performs more than 240 performances per year at the Hamburg State Opera and the Hamburg Ballet John Neumeier, making it Hamburg’s busiest orchestra. The stylistic bandwidth covered by the 140 musicians, ranging from historically informed performance practice to contemporary works and including concert, opera and ballet repertoire, is unique throughout Germany. Chamber Music has a long tradition at the Philharmonic State Orchestra: what began in 1929 with a concert series for chamber orchestra has been continued since 1968 by a series of chamber music only.

In 2008 Simone Young and the Philharmonic State Orchestra won the »Brahms Award« of the Schleswig-Holstein Brahms Society. The orchestra has recorded the complete Ring by Wagner as well as the complete symphonies of Johannes Brahms and Anton Bruckner – the latter in the rarely-performed original versions – as well as works by Mahler, Hindemith and Berg, and has released DVDs of opera and ballet productions by Hosokawa, Offenbach, Reimann, Auerbach, J.S. Bach, Puccini, Poulenc and Weber.

The members of the Philharmonic State Orchestra feel equally beholden to Hamburg’s musical tradition and responsible for the city’s artistic future. Since 1978 the musicians have been participating in education programmes in Hamburg’s schools. Today, the orchestra maintains a broad education programme, including school and kindergarten visits, patronage for music projects, introductory events for children and family concerts. The orchestra’s own academy prepares young musicians for their professional careers. The Philharmonic’s musicians thereby make an equally enjoyable and valuable contribution to tomorrow’s music education in the music metropolis of Hamburg.

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.

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.

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.

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«.

Saxon State Opera Chorus Dresden

Saxon State Opera Chorus Dresden

The Dresden Opera Chorus was founded on 8 October 1817 by royal proclamation. The issuing of this decree by Frederick Augustus I of Saxony can be largely attributed to the efforts of the recently engaged court Kapellmeister, Carl Maria von Weber, who was commissioned in that year to establish a German opera company to complement the Italian opera long performed in Dresden. Weber demanded the establishment of a »permanent theatre choir« able to meet the rising demands of the new opera repertoire.

Over the following decades and centuries, the Saxon State Opera Chorus developed into a first-class and highly sought-after ensemble thanks to the many outstanding figures who maintained its operatic roots while carefully nurturing its artistic development. The list of former directors includes Joseph Metzner, Wilhelm Fischer, Karl Maria Pembaur, Ernst Hintze, Gerhart Wüstner, Hans Peter Müller-Sybel, Hans-Dieter Pflüger and Matthias Brauer. They all cultivated the unique sound of the State Opera Chorus, a quality particularly influenced by the ensemble’s active concert schedule. An homogeneous and elegant tone, sensitive piano singing infused with a dense and rich timbre, these are the essential characteristics of the State Opera Chorus. Jörn Hinnerk Andresen was chorus director from 2014/15 to 2018/19. Jan Hoffmann assumed the post of acting director from the 2019/20 season.

Today the Saxon State Opera Chorus is regarded as one of Europe’s leading classical choirs. Its appearances on the operatic stage, its participation in concerts and radio, television or CD productions as well as its regular performances at festivals and on tour have earned it international recognition and the highest accolades.

Of particular significance was the collaboration with the conductor Giuseppe Sinopoli, who viewed the ensemble as still possessing untapped reserves. In numerous CD productions, the chorus time and again reached new artistic heights, which were consolidated in the years after Sinopoli’s sudden death by constant work.

As in all artistic endeavours of the Saxon State Opera in Dresden, the State Opera Chorus combines a strong sense of tradition and contemporary artistic responsibility with a desire to meet future challenges. Since 2013 the State Opera Chorus, together with the Staatskapelle Dresden, has been a permanent guest at the Salzburg Easter Festival, whose artistic director is Christian Thielemann. On 8 October 2017, the Saxon State Opera Chorus celebrated its 200th anniversary.

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Orchestras

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Soon after it was founded by Eugen Jochum in 1949, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra developed into an internationally renowned orchestra, its fame continuously expanded and fortified by its intensive touring activities. The orchestra owes its extraordinarily wide ranging repertoire and sound spectrum to the program preferences of its previous chief conductors as well as to the great flexibility and solid stylistic security of each individual musician.

Fostering new music has an especially long tradition at the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra with appearances in conjunction with the musica viva series, founded in 1945 by Karl Amadeus Hartmann, as one of the orchestra’s main assignments right from the start. At these concerts, Munich audiences have witnessed legendary performances of contemporary works at which the composers themselves generally stood on the podium of the orchestra. These included Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Paul Hindemith, Pierre Boulez, as well as, more recently, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Mauricio Kagel, Luciano Berio and Péter Eötvös.

Over the past few years, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has also pursued new approaches to early music and now collaborates regularly with such experts in historical performance practice as Thomas Hengelbrock, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Ton Koopman. Many renowned guest conductors, such as Erich and Carlos Kleiber, Otto Klemperer, Karl Böhm, Günter Wand, Sir Georg Solti, Carlo Maria Giulini, Kurt Sanderling and Wolfgang Sawallisch have left indelible imprints on the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in the past. Today Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Muti, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Franz Welser-Möst, Daniel Harding and Andris Nelsons number amongst the significant partners who regularly mount the podium in Munich. The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra was also the only German orchestra with which Leonard Bernstein regularly collaborated for many years.

Besides the many performances and recordings in Munich and other cities in the station’s broadcast range, extensive concert tours are central components in the everyday life of the orchestra today. Tours have taken the orchestra to virtually every European country, to Asia as well as to North and South America.

A further special feature is the encouragement of up-and-coming young musicians. In conjunction with the ARD International Music Competition, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra accompanies young musicians both in the final rounds as well as in the symphonic closing concert featuring the prize winners. Since October of 2001 the Academy of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has been doing valuable educational work by preparing young musicians for their later careers and thus building a solid bridge between education and professional activity. Beyond this, the orchestra maintains an encouragement program for young people with many activities designed toward the worthy goal of bringing the younger generation closer together with classical music.

With a high number of CD releases, among others a series of live recordings of Munich concerts, Mariss Jansons continued to expand the orchestra’s vast discography. The recording of Shostakovich’s 13th Symphony won the »Grammy« for »Best Orchestral Performance« in 2006. Since September of 2009, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has been releasing CD’s and DVD’s on Bavarian Broadcasting’s own label, BR-KLASSIK.

In a number of different surveys of music critics, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks has numbered among the top ten orchestras in the world, most recently in the 2008 orchestra ranking by the British music magazine »Gramophone« (6th place), and in the Japanese music magazine »Mostly Classic« in 2010 (4th place). The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks got awarded the »Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik« (Award of German Record’s Review) for Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 conducted by Andris Nelsons. In February 2016, the production of the »Missa solemnis« by Ludwig van Beethoven under the direction of Bernard Haitinkder was nominated for the »Grammy« with choir and symphony orchestra of the Bayerischer Rundfunk. For the recording of the 3rd Symphony by Gustav Mahler under the direction of Bernard Haitink, the orchestra was awarded the »BBC Music Award« in April 2018. The recording of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8, conducted by Mariss Jansons received the »Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik« in 2018.

Mariss Jansons conducted his last concert with the BRSO on November 8, 2019 at the Carnegie Hall in New York. Just a few weeks later, on December 1, 2019, Mariss Jansons passed away in St. Petersburg at the age of 76.

Vision String Quartet

Vision String Quartet

Founded in 2012 and based in Berlin, the Vision String Quartet has already established itself as one of the finest young string quartets of its generation. With a unique versatility that focuses on the classical string quartet repertoire alongside their own compositions and arrangements of other disparate genres, the four young musicians are on a mission to re-address with integrity how classical music is presented and perceived by both new and traditional audiences. Their distinctive characteristics of performing all their concerts completely from memory and standing up lend its performances an added intimacy and intensity which has been widely praised.

2016 was a year of remarkable achievement for the quartet as they achieved not only First prize in two major competitions but all the audience and special prizes too.

Born in St Petersburg in 1972, Arcadi Volodos began his musical studies with lessons in singing and conducting.

Piano recitals have played a central role in Volodos’s artistic life since he began his career. His repertoire includes major works by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Beethoven, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Prokofiev and Ravel together with less often performed pieces by Mompou, Lecuona and de Falla.

Volodos is a regular guest of the most prestigious concert halls of Europe – among others the Konserthuset in Stockholm, the Tonhalle in Zurich, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Barbican Centre in London, and the Théatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris.

Since his »Gramophone Award«-winning debut recital at New York’s Carnegie Hall, released by Sony Classical in 1999, Arcadi Volodos has recorded a series of critically acclaimed albums. These include revelatory interpretations of Schubert sonatas and Rachmaninoff solo pieces, and live performances with the Berlin Philharmonic of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto, conducted by James Levine, and Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, conducted by Seiji Ozawa. »Volodos Plays Liszt«, released in 2007, attracted numerous prizes, and his solo album »Volodos Plays Mompou« (2013), devoted to works by the Spanish composer Frederic Mompou, received a »Gramophone Award« and the »Echo«. »Volodos Plays Brahms« has been published in April 2017, immediately considered a landmark on the music scene, and has been awarded with the »Edison Classical Award«, the »Diapason d’Or« and the prestigious »Gramophone Award« 2018 as the best instrumental recording of the year.

Vienna Philharmonic

Orchestras

Vienna Philharmonic

Vienna Philharmonic

There is perhaps no other musical ensemble more closely associated with the history and tradition of European classical music than the Vienna Philharmonic. In the course of the past 178 years, this orchestra has experienced and influenced the course of musical history around the world. Even to this day, prominent soloists and conductors refer to the unique »Viennese Sound« as the outstanding quality that sets it apart from other orchestras.

The fascination that the orchestra has held since its foundation by Otto Nicolai in 1842 for prominent composers and conductors, as well as for audiences all over the world, is based upon the conscious maintenance of a homogenous musical style which is carefully bequeathed from one generation to the next, as well as a unique history and organizational structure. The pillars of the »Philharmonic Idea«, which remain valid even today, are a democratic organization that places the entire artistic and organizational decision-making process in the hands of the musicians themselves, and a close symbiosis with the Vienna State Opera Orchestra. Vienna Philharmonic statutes stipulate that only musicians from the opera orchestra can become members of the Vienna Philharmonic. Another unique feature of this democratic structure is that the orchestra itself is solely responsible for the organization of concerts and the selection of repertoire, as well as the engaging of conductors and soloists.

In 1860, the Subscription Concert series was introduced, for which one conductor was engaged for an entire season. These concerts formed a solid artistic and economic basis that remains in place to this day. Beginning in 1933, the orchestra adapted a system of guest conductors, which promotes a wide spectrum of artistic encounters with the most prominent conductors of each generation. The orchestra's touring activity commenced at the beginning of the 20th century and has since taken the orchestra to all continents on the globe. In recent years this has included regularly scheduled concerts in Germany, Japan, the USA and, in the future, China.

In 2018 the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Academy was founded. The academy students will be selected in accordance with a strict, internationally oriented audition process and trained at the highest level during a two-year course of study. On September 1st, 2019 the first 12 academists started their studies in Vienna. The Vienna Philharmonic has made it its mission to communicate the humanitarian message of music into the daily lives and consciousness of its listeners. From the beginning, the orchestra has displayed a strong social consciousness, characterized by a commitment to individuals in need and the fostering of young musicians. To this day, the orchestra performs numerous benefit concerts and develops initiatives for the disadvantaged.

The orchestra has been the recipient of numerous prizes and awards. Since 2008, it has been supported by its exclusive sponsor ROLEX. The Vienna Philharmonic performs approximately 40 concerts in Vienna annually, among them the New Year's Concert and the Summer Night Concert Schönbrunn, which are broadcast in numerous countries around the world. The orchestra also has an annual summer residency at the Salzburg Festival and performs more than 50 concerts a year on its international tours. All of these activities underscore the reputation of the Vienna Philharmonic as one of the world's finest orchestras.

Schola’s 2018 recording on the Hyperion label featuring Palestrina’s »Missa Confitebor tibi Domine« has garnered enthusiastic reviews. A live recording of Heinrich Biber’s 1693 »Vesperae longiores ac breviores« with Robert Mealy and Yale Collegium Musicum received international acclaim from the early music press, as have subsequent CDs of J. S. Bach’s rarely heard 1725 version of the »St. John Passion« and Antonio Bertali’s »Missa Resurrectionis«. A recording on the Naxos label of Mendelssohn and Bach Magnificats was released in 2009. On tour, Schola Cantorum has given performances in England, Hungary, France, China, South Korea, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Japan, Singapore, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, India, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway.
