Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks

Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks


The critically acclaimed Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (BRSO) was founded in 1949 by Eugen Jochum. The orchestra soon developed into an internationally renowned orchestra, its fame continuously expanded and fortified by its intensive touring activities. The orchestra owes its extraordinarily wide ranging repertoire and sound spectrum to the programme preferences of its previous chief conductors as well as to the great flexibility and solid stylistic security of each individual musician. In September 2023, Sir Simon Rattle became the sixth Chief Conductor of the BRSO.

Besides the many performances and recordings in Munich and other cities in the station’s broadcast range, extensive concert tours are central components in the everyday life of the orchestra today. Tours have taken the orchestra to virtually every European country, to Asia as well as to North and South America. It makes regular appearances in New York’s Carnegie Hall and in the renowned concert halls in Japan’s musical capitals.
