Bamberg Diary 3

BAMBERG DIARY #3 - In Bamberg Zuhause

The new Bamberg Diary is out!

The Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, which normally gives guest performances on all continents, was forced to cancel all planned tours in 2020 and 2021. Nevertheless, photographer Andreas Herzau has once again succeeded in portraying the orchestra in an ingenious way whilst also creating a very special city guide in the third volume of the BAMBERG DIARY.

Available in the shop of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra and wherever books are available.


Hans Rott CD Bamberger Symphoniker

Awarded with the ICMA - International Classical Music Award

Hans Rott wrote his First Symphony - filled with groundbreaking musical ideas and a unique vision for how the symphony could develop - at a time when his younger schoolmate Mahler was barely getting started and his mentor Bruckner was stuggling through his middle period. Jakub Hrůša and the Bamberger Symphoniker present this masterpiece alongside works by Bruckner and Mahler, shining a new light on a work which deserves to sit at the centre of the symphonic repertoire.

The jury writes: "(...) their interpretation is so convincing that we can say that no one else has advocated Rott’s music as profoundly as the performers on this recording. Works by Bruckner and Mahler, who both admired Rott’s work, complete this superb CD."

Released by Deutsche Grammophon.
