Isabelle Faust & Jakub Hrůša

The BRSO is giving its début in Gasteig’s Interim Quarter with Jakub Hrůša and the violinist Isabelle Faust. She will play the Britten concerto of 1939, a work whose symphonic earnestness and luscious violin writing place it among the foremost violin concertos of the 20th century. In addition to the insolent and brilliant First Symphony Jakub Hrůša will introduce us to a composer from his own Czech homeland: Miloslav Kabeláč. Advance ticket sales for the concerts on October 28 & 29, 2021 at the Isarphilharmonie will start on October 12. 



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.



We are very happy to welcome you again! Your safety is our top priority! We make sure that all necessary hygiene measures are taken. With the 14th Bavarian Infection Protection Measures Ordinance, which came into force on September 1, 2021, it is permitted to occupy all seats in the hall again. Please note: The upcoming concerts in the Isarphilharmonie will be performed according to the “3G Plus”-rule. This means either “vaccinated,” “recovered,” or “tested by PCR test.” The effect of these new regulations is that a mask no longer needs to be worn during the event. 



A special live recording has been released on the BR-KLASSIK label: the legendary performance of Verdi’s “Messa da Requiem” from October 1981, conducted by the then 40-year-old Riccardo Muti! The vocal soloists are no less prominent: Jessye Norman, Agnes Baltsa, José Carreras and Yevgeny Nesterenko can be heard! “Whoever has not heard this recording does not know the Verdi Requiem! ” Markus Thiel, Münchner Merkur 2021



Few performers are as intimately familiar with the musical language of French composer Olivier Messiaen as Kent Nagano. Now BR-KLASSIK presents three masterpieces by the sound magician Messiaen, which Nagano conducted in recent years on the podium of the BRSO. The focus is on the oratorio “La Transfiguration de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ”. In addition, the 3-CD box set also includes the works “Poèmes pour Mi” and “Chronochromie”. This edition is released not least in honor of Kent Nagano’s 70th birthday on November 22, 2021.



As of now, BRticket and the subscription office are open again for customers. The office on the ground floor of the BR tower building on Arnulfstraße has changed opening hours.

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.
