Klaus Mäkelä & Beatrice Rana

We are very sorry that Mikko Franck had to cancel the concerts on February 20 and 21 due to health reasons. We are pleased that Klaus Mäkelä has agreed to take over at short notice. Please note the associated program change: instead of “Apotheosis” by Rautavaara, Kodály’s “Dances of Galánta” will be heard.


beatrice Rana about Prokofiev

On February 20 & 21 Italian pianist Beatrice Rana gives her BRSO-debut with Prokofiev’s 3rd piano concerto. We asked her to give us a little insight in her interpretation und we were keen to know which musical aspects she focuses on.


Lorenzo Viotti & Lisa Batiashvili

Swiss conductor Lorenzo Viotti will take over the concerts on May 14 & 15 with Lisa Batiashvili. These concerts were originally planned with our chief conductor Mariss Jansons. Please note the program change.

Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks

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.
