Gustavo Dudamel – SChumann Cycle

Once again Gustavo Dudamel will be a guest of the BRSO! Now this principal conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic has dreamt up something special for his five short concerts: a Schumann cycle, something never heard before in such concentration at the BRSO. Don’t miss our video-livestream on Oct 24 at 6pm & on Oct 25 at 3pm!


Rehearsal with Dudamel

How does a conductor work? And how do you recognize his individual handwriting? In our series “Rehearsal with…” we would like to give you an insight into the work of the BRSO. This week with Gustavo Dudamel was very intense due to the repertoire, but it was also a lot of fun!



With Klaus Mäkelä we welcome another prominent guest in our chamber music series WATCH THIS SPACE in the Werksviertel-Mitte. Mäkelä, who will conduct the BRSO on October 29 and 30, changes sides the evening before and can be heard as cellist in Schubert’s String Quintet in C major, op. Post. 163, D 956.



Bruckner’s symphonies were a constant part of the repertoire for Mariss Jansons and the BRSO. The newly presented box set from BR-KLASSIK contains recordings of the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th symphonies on a total of six CDs. They were recorded live between 2005 and 2017. The recording of the Sixth Symphony appears here on CD for the first time, and that of the Third Symphony has so far only been available as part of the Bruckner Box 900716.



In light of the ongoing pandemic, the BRSO has revised its schedule through the end of the year. The majority of our concerts will take place with the  originally planned conductors and soloists, but programs have been adjusted and shortened. In view of the limits placed on audience capacity, most programs are offered twice per evening. Artist in Residence Igor Levit kicks off our season on September 24 & 25.

Shortly after it was founded by Eugen Jochum in 1949 the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (BRSO) developed into an orchestra of international repute. The British trade journal Gramophone placed it among the top ten of ‘the world’s greatest orchestras’, as did the Japanese music magazine Mostly Classic.

Whether in its Munich concerts or on its worldwide tours, the BRSO works on a regular basis with renowned conductors and soloists. It can boast of numerous CD releases and prizes, including a Grammy for ‘best orchestral performance’ and the German Record Critics’ Prize.

The core missions of the BRSO also include promoting young talent and cultivating the music of our time. From 2003 -2019 the orchestra has been headed by the Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons.
