Bamberg Concert Hall

Gabriel Feltz conductor
Elisabeth Kulman
Alto

Toru Takemitsu
»How Slow the Wind«
Gustav Mahler
»Rückert-Lieder«
Franz Schmidt
Symphonie Nr. 2 Es-Dur

Unfortunately Fabio Luisi had to cancel his conducting for this week due to illness. We are very pleased that Gabriel Feltz will take over the concerts with an unchanged symphonic repertoire. However, Elisabeth Kulman will sing Gustav Mahler's Rückert Lieder instead of the Kindertotenlieder originally planned.

The "3-G rule" continues to apply: vaccinated, recovered, tested (PCR and antigen). In the concert hall - also at the place during the concert - masks are still mandatory.

Attention: Parking spaces in the underground car park are still limited. A free shuttle bus will depart from the Georgendamm underground car park 50 and 30 minutes before a concert begins.

(Please do not forget your proof of identity).

Current and detailed information about our hygiene concept and the protective measures we have developed can be found HERE.


Newly Released


Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 4

3 versions + alternative movements and fragments
Bamberger Symphoniker, Jakub Hrůša
4 CDs // Accentus ACC30533

"The technical level and the dedication of the Bamberg Symphony together with Hrůša’s exceptional interpretation raise this Bruckner to the very highest level, not least because the recorded sound is equally outstanding."

"No one who claims to know his Bruckner should pass this box by."

(Remy Franck, Pizzicato)

This CD box is the world's first complete recording of all three versions of the Bruckner Symphony by an orchestra as a complete release. It is accompanied by musicological expertise made accessible to all recipients. The recording of all versions of the 4th Symphony presented here is the first recording of the versions revised by Prof. Dr Ben Korstvedt and is thus unsurpassed in its topicality. The release includes a fourth "laboratory CD" on which, for the first time ever, individual passages from the different versions can be heard in direct comparison, such as the alternative finale ("Volksfest") to the second version, as well as further excerpts from early previously unpublished drafts.

THE GERMAN RECORD CRITICS' AWARD FOR OUR MAHLER IV

Our Mahler 4 recording from summer 2020, conducted by our principal conductor Jakub Hrůša, and together with Anna Lucia Richter, has won the prestigious German Record Critics' Award! The prize is awarded for the best recordings of the past 18 months.

The jury described our recording as a "fine recording that exceeds all expectations" in its statement: "One experiences highly intelligent, skillfully shrewd music-making as from one cast. There is an immediate reaction, instrumentally optimal variations are offered. Hrůša shapes and indulges, but at the same time hears the ambiguous behind the beauty and intimacy, dares also the sarcastic, tenderly crude."
