In 2000, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks celebrated its 50th anniversary. A joyful reason to look back on an extraordinarily successful artistic past, during which the orchestra was able to develop its own individual sound image under its chief conductors Eugen Jochum, Rafael Kubelík, Sir Colin Davis und Lorin Maazel. At the same time, it was also an occasion to devote some serious thought to the future in the awareness that the tradition of this renowned ensemble must be preserved and its high artistic quality continued – now under Mariss Jansons.
The Bayerischer Rundfunk sought to meet this responsibility by founding its own Academy to foster the education of tomorrow’s orchestral musicians. The Academy has the goal of educating especially talented instrumentalists, who can meet the artistic requirements of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra as well as those of other internationally significant orchestras. The young musicians are given a two-year (post-graduate) training program to prepare them for the high demands of the world’s top orchestras.
