Bamberg Symphony celebrates 75 years of excellent music!

For our 75th anniversary, we, together with our media partner BR-KLASSIK, broadcast the Bamberg Symphony´s big anniversary concert on TV and radio as well as online.

The festive concert that was broadcast on Thursday, March 18, 2021 is available as video stream on BR-KLASSIK CONCERT
as well as in the ARD-alpha Mediathek.

The program included:
Ludwig van Beethoven:
Overture "Leonore" No. 3 op. 72b
Concerto for violin and orchestra in D major op. 61
Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major op. 55 "Eroica"

Christoph Eschenbach conductor
Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider violin


Our latest cd release: Gustav Mahler Symphony Nr. 4

In July, in the middle of the first Corona summer, we used the time for a wonderful recording (in co-production with BR-Klassik). At the same time, we investigated how successful recordings are possible at this time, on the one hand with regard to safety, and on the other hand also under the musically crucial aspects such as sound and interaction of the orchestra. The result is an extraordinary recording of Gustav Mahler's 4th Symphony together with our principal conductor Jakub Hrůša. The mezzo-soprano part in the 4th movement was taken by Anna Lucia Richter. Released by accentus music (catalog number: ACC30532), available now.

To our livestreams...

As there is no foreseeable easing of international entry restrictions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our Japan tour scheduled for June 2021. This also means that the concerts at Festival Hall (Osaka) on June 21, as well as at Suntory Hall (Tokyo) on June 23, are cancelled. Discussions for the next visit to Japan will continue accordingly.
