CANCELLATION OF THE CONCERTS IN December
On 25 November, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to extend the prohibition of events until 20 December, among other measures to contain the corona pandemic. On this basis, the Bayerischer Rundfunk is forced to cancel the concerts of its orchestras and musica viva with live audience in December 2020.

Franz Schubert – Audio biography
The tenth audio biography is devoted to the short, but extremely productive life of Franz Schubert. Jörg Handstein unrolls an astonishingly colorful and multifaceted picture of the composer, often reduced to clichés, on 3 CDs. As a bonus, the CD contains a previously unpublished recording of “The Great” C Major Symphony, D.944 conducted by Herbert Blomstedt.
Mariss Jansons – His last concert
On November 8, 2019, at Carnegie Hall, New York, during a tour with the BRSO and only a few weeks before his unexpected death, Mariss Jansons conducted his final concert. On the programme were the four symphonic interludes from Richard Strauss’ opera “Intermezzo” and Johannes Brahms’ Fourth Symphony. The live recording in Carnegie Hall, released here for the first time on CD by BR-KLASSIK, is the great conductor’s musical legacy.
