The anniversary season 2020/2021

Dear friends of music,It soon will be 75 years since an orchestra was (re)founded in a small Bavarian city that had survived the War well-nigh unscathed – an orchestra that brought together musicians from Prague and German-speaking Bohemia and thus had a tradition of more than 150 years as its birthright. We want to celebrate this, looking back gratefully on 75 years of music for the entire world – a world that we have travelled from the very beginning as cultural ambassadors of Bavaria and the whole of Germany, giving more than 7,300 concerts at 535 locations in 63 countries.

The anniversary season 2020/2021

Special concert with Herbert Blomstedt

Honory Conductor Herbert Blomstedt

To our great pleasure Herbert Blomstedt stayed for one week in Bamberg to conduct a concert with our orchestra on Saturday 11th of July - the day of the 93rd Birthday of our Honory Conductor. The program contained the Symphony No 3 "Symphonie liturgique" by Arthur Honegger and the Symphony No 4 e-Minor op. 98 by Johannes Brahms. We hardly can express how happy we are that Herbert Blomstedt celebrated this day with us in Bamberg. We sincerely wish him all the best and healthieness for his birthday.

The concert was recorded via Livestream by the Bavarian TV and can be called up in the BR Klassik Mediathek under
