Due to illness in the BR-Chor, the premiere of the work “Exiles. Remembrances for voices and orchestra” by Julian Anderson has to be cancelled at short notice. Instead of the work by Julian Anderson, Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor KV 550 will be on the program before the intermission. In addition, Robin Ticciati’s concerts on January 20 and 21 will feature Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Third Symphony – a late-Romantic monument that has not been played by the BRSO for nearly half a century! It was about time for this nostalgic late work, which is characterized by palatable melodies, rousing rhythms and unspeakable melancholy. BR-KLASSIK will broadcast the concert live on the radio on Friday, January 21, 2022.


musica viva

Listen to two world premieres, both composition commissions of musica viva of the BR, in the concert on January 28, 2022 in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz! The BRSO will perform new works by Liza Lim and Hans Thomalla, conducted by Johannes Kalitzke. In addition, Histoire du Plaisir et de la Désolation by Luc Ferrari will be performed. BR-KLASSIK will broadcast the concert live on the radio and as a video livestream. Tickets for it are on sale now.


Rehearsal Insight

Ta ta taaaa: We start the new year with a rehearsal insight into Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. We talked to Iván Fischer about what he pays attention to during rehearsals and whether the many clichés surrounding the beginning of the “Fate Symphony” actually annoy him…


To the concert Visit

Due to the Corona regulations of the Bavarian State Government (15th BayIfSMV), the “2G plus” rule continues to apply to the concerts of the BRSO. This means that concert attendance is only possible for persons with a valid proof of vaccination or convalescence and a negative rapid antigen test (24 hrs old) or PCR test (48 hrs old). If you have received a booster vaccination, you are exempt from the additional testing obligation from the day of this vaccination. In addition, the testing obligation does not apply to persons who have survived an infection after complete immunization. Please bring the above-mentioned proof and a photo ID with you to your concert visit.



Unfortunately, Infection Protection Measures Ordinance of the Bavarian State Government continues to allow only 25% of the possible seating capacity. To our great regret, the concerts in January can therefore not take place as part of the subscriptions. Customers of the corresponding subscription series will of course automatically receive a pro-rata refund of the subscription fees. Subscription tickets issued for the concerts on January 13/14 and January 20/21 will be cancelled and are invalid. We ask for your understanding that the refund will take some time. As of Tuesday, January 4, 2022, the concerts are on sale again with a capacity of 25%.


The new Gasteig HP8 opened on October 8, 2021. During the renovation of the cultural center in Haidhausen, BRSO concerts will also take place in the new Isarphilharmonie at Hans-Preißinger-Strasse 4-8 (HP8) in Sendling. Move with us! We have compiled the most important information about the new venue for you. Please note the current hygiene regulations.



From 2003-2019 Mariss Jansons was chief conductor of the BRSO. All concerts of this era are now documented in a timeline to remember and relive – partly with additional galleries, videos and excerpts from interviews or rehearsals from the archives of BR-KLASSIK and the BRSO. Also available: a film with many moving memories of companions and musicians of the BRSO, which can be found under December 1, 2019. Have fun browsing and reminiscing!

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.
