The Bamberg Symphony Orchestra – Bavarian State Philharmonic has always enjoyed a special status in the music world. Over 6,500 concerts in more than 60 countries and 500 cities – with that record, the Bamberg Symphony is rightly considered the German touring orchestra. Evidence of the outstanding reputation it enjoys everywhere comes in constant invitations to visit leading festivals and to tour at home and abroad, and in prizes for the Orchestra’s recordings such as the MIDEM Classical Award. The Bamberger Symphoniker’s roots lie in the musical culture of Bohemia. In 1946 former members of Prague’s German Philharmonic met fellow musicians who had also been obliged to flee their homes. In Bamberg they founded the “Bamberger Tonkünstlerorchester”, later renamed “Bamberger Symphoniker”. The Bamberger Symphoniker were the first German orchestra to tour Europe, North and South America and Asia after World War II. In July 2003, the Bamberger Symphoniker were appointed “Bayerische Staatsphilharmonie” (“Bavarian State Philharmonic”). Their extensive discography illustrates the orchestra’s history and achievements: over the decades, hundreds of recordings were made in collaboration with the Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Radio).
