Klassik am Odeonsplatz

We were very pleased that our annual season finale “Klassik am Odeonsplatz” on July 10, 2021 took place in a reduced form as a special project! Sol Gabetta played the Cello Concerto by Schumann, Daniel Harding was conducting. The concert video is now available!



The Konzerthaus München is entering the next planning phase! The Budget Committee of the Bavarian State Parliament gave the green light for further planning on July 8, 2021, after Minister of Art Bernd Sibler presented the current status of the preliminary planning to the committee. The BRSO and its designated principal conductor Simon Rattle very much welcome this decision on the future of the Munich Konzerthaus.


The new season is online!

We  are delighted to announce our new season!  Magnificent artists will be our partners throughout, and we await the débuts of conductors Joana Mallwitz, Shiyeon Sung, Roderick Cox and Philippe Jordan in particular with keen anticipation. Johann Sebastian Bach’s St Matthew Passion, headed by our Chief Conductor designate Sir Simon Rattle, will number among the season’s highlights, as will the musica viva concerts for Wolfgang Rihm’s 70th birthday, which feature a number of works by the birthday celebrant himself. But our greatest pleasure will be to see you at our concerts!



In fall 2021, the Gasteig will move and become the Gasteig HP8. 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. We have compiled the most important information about the new venue for you. Let’s move together!

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.
