On 28 October, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to prohibit events from 2 November until the end of the month, 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. Tickets already purchased will be refunded.

concerts on 29 & 30 October

The 7-day incidence in Munich has exceeded the 100 mark. Therefore we are obliged to perform our concerts with Klaus Mäkelä and Igor Levit in the Herkulessaal only for a maximum audience of 50 people. Since 200 tickets were already on sale before this new regulation came into force, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra decided to draw the 50 available seats. Customers who have purchased tickets will be actively notified by e-mail or telephone.

Gustavo Dudamel – SChumann Cycle

Once again Gustavo Dudamel was a guest of the BRSO! The principal conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic has dreamt up something special for the five short concerts: a Schumann cycle, something never heard before in such concentration at the BRSO. You can now watch the concert videos of October 24 with Schumann’s 2nd Symphony and October 25 with Schumann’s “Rhenish” in our media library!

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.

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.
