Among the singers whose performances will be highlights of the coming season are Maria Bengtsson, Julia Bullock, Lucy Crowe, Barbara Hannigan, Anja Kampe, Siobhan Stagg, Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Gerhild Romberger, Peter Hoare, Simon O’Neill, Maximilian Schmitt, Georg Nigl, Michael Volle, Franz-Josef Selig and Georg Zeppenfeld, while instrumentalists will include the violinists Lisa Batiashvili, Augustin Hadelich, Leonidas Kavakos and Gil Shaham, the violoncellist Gautier Capuçon and the pianists Daniel Barenboim, Yefim Bronfman, Rudolf Buchbinder and Seong-Jin Cho.

Artist in Residence: Tabea Zimmermann
Violist Tabea Zimmermann inspires audiences around the world with her wonderful, dark timbre viola sound and her impressive playing technique. Together with her as artist in residence, we will perform three diverse concert programmes – predominantly with works from the 20th and 21st centuries.
ARtist in residence: Kirill gerstein
The American-Russian pianist Kirill Gerstein guarantees sensational concerts – and not with the usual piano concerto literature! This season he performs three highly diverse concerts as Artist in Residence.
Watch This Space concert series
Unusual programmes in a relaxed atmosphere in the Werksviertel-Mitte – that’s what the Watch This Space chamber music series stands for. While it was initially born “out of pandemic necessity,” it has since become an integral artistic component of the BRSO.
Experiencing music live, creating it yourself, talking to professionals and becoming music educators yourself – children and young people can do all this with BRSO Education. Because music is particularly exciting when you can be active yourself.
All in all more than 180 young people have completed the two-year postgraduate programme and look back on their time in the Academy with great excitement
