Event Calendar

CONCERTS FROM JANUARY TO MARCH 2021

Please note: Despite the uncertainty of whether audience will be allowed, and with the strict requirements to ensure the best possible health protection for you and our musicians, we would like to offer you an attractive concert programme with prominent soloists in the first quarter of 2021.

Advance ticket sales, which will take place exclusively by telephone and online, will start two weeks before each concert – always on Tuesdays at 9:00 am – provided that legal regulations permit concerts with audience. Otherwise, Bayerischer Rundfunk will endeavor to provide free live streams of the concerts on the BR-KLASSIK or BRSO websites, in addition to the live radio broadcasts on Thursday or Friday.
