Due to corona illnesses in the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the concerts unfortunately have to be cancelled. The live radio broadcast on BR-KLASSIK is thus also cancelled. Tickets already purchased will be refunded. You will be contacted proactively.
Also for the work "Exiles. Remembrances for voices and orchestra" by Julian Anderson, which was removed from the programme due to corona illnesses in the Bavarian Radio Chorus, we are looking for a replacement date on which Robin Ticciati will once again be at the podium of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
The decision to cancel the concert currently only affects this week's concerts. As soon as decisions about the following week(s) have been made, they will be communicated immediately.
The BRSO and all its employees ask for your understanding for this decision. The health and protection of all participants and the audience have absolute priority.

Due to illness in the Bavarian Radio Chorus, the premiere of the work “Exiles. Remembrances for voices and orchestra” by Julian Anderson had to be cancelled at short notice.
About the Programme
Exiles – thus the title of the new large-scale work for soprano, chorus and orchestra by Julian Anderson, a British composer born in 1967. Anderson probes highly contrasting aspects of his subject, ranging from the Jewish nation’s yearning for home during the Babylonian Captivity to an homage to Varian Fry, who enabled thousands of people to escape Nazi persecution, to the forced isolation of today’s pandemic. Rachmaninoff, too, suffered deeply from exile: the October Revolution of 1917 drove him from Russia and left him uprooted forever. His longing for the vanished world of his native land explains the often-rapturous romanticism of his music. It is this inflection that pervades the Third Symphony of 1936, along with modern harmonies and layers of sound. Heading the unusual programme is the British conductor Robin Ticciati, a longstanding and welcome guest at the BRSO.
