“I’m an orchestra musician and when my instrument was taken – in this case the orchestra – I felt initially empty. My wishes for the future are crystal clear: to perform as soon as possible as a whole orchestra – for as many people as possible.” Marije Grevink and Klaus-Peter Werani played on June 10, 2020 in the “Gin City” in Munich’s Werkviertel Bach and Ysaÿe.

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.
