Tags/Genres Ensembles

The Grammy-winning Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra‘s broad repertoire and huge discography include music of the Classical and Romantic eras through 20th-century and contemporary works. The only German orchestra to have performed regularly with Leonard Bernstein, composer/conductor collaborations included Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Paul Hindemith, Pierre Boulez and Karlheinz Stockhausen. New approaches to early music have led to collaborations with such historical performance experts as Thomas Hengelbrock, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Ton Koopman. Chief Conductor Mariss Jansons, venerated for his immense knowledge, passion and inspiration, is one of the greatest conductors of our time. Leonidas Kavakos, Gramophone‘s 2014 Artist of the Year, is renowned as a violinist of rare quality, known at the highest level for his virtuosity and musicianship.
