»Let's take a photo« - a new orchestra photo is taken!

June 2018, it’s a beautiful summer day in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bamberg and that’s where they stand: Over 100 musicians from Bamberg Symphony are gathering on the forecourt of the Neue Residenz in their city for a mission: a new orchestra photo! How photographer Andreas Herzau constructs such a picture and which logistics are necessary for it? The making-of video by Michael Wende gives a glimpse behind the scenes! And the new photo summarizes our claim in one picture: Extraordinary city – extraordinary orchestra!

The Brahms-Dvořák – cycle conducted by Jakub Hrůša

The 50th CD recording of Bamberg Symphony’s collaboration with Tudor and Bayerischer Rundfunk is also the first of a new cycle with its Chief Conductor Jakub Hrůša: The last four symphonies by Antonín Dvořák are juxtaposed with the four masterworks by Johannes Brahms. This four-part series kicks off with the last symphonies of each of the two composers: Brahms’ Fourth and Dvořák’s Ninth symphony (“From the New Word“).
