DANISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Danish Chamber Orchestra has existed as a private orchestra since January 2015. Before that time, the orchestra was one of the Danish radio ensembles.
Principal Conductor Ádám Fischer has been affiliated with the orchestra since 1997. Together with him, the orchestra has developed a refined and energetic style of playing, especially in the Viennese classics. In 2013, their complete recording of all Mozart’s symphonies was released in a groundbreaking interpretation which attracted international attention and was rewarded the prestigious ICMA Award in 2014.
The orchestra already began their work with Beethoven’s symphonies in 2013. However, after the break with DR, the project was restarted, and the release date was set for May 2019. The complete recordings of the nine Beethoven symphonies were thus created in the orchestra’s period as a private ensemble. The release has been made possible thanks to generous support from three large Danish foundations: The Augustinus Foundation, The Louis-Hansen Foundation and The A.P. Møller Foundation. The recordings have taken place immediately after intensive and well-attended concerts at the orchestra’s old "home ground": the concert hall of the former Radio in Copenhagen, which is now home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music.
Danish Chamber Orchestra insists on focusing on the social significance of music and is deeply committed to talent development, commucation and the development of new concert forms. The orchestra has a tradition of bridging between different musical genres and traditions and collaborates equally enthusiastically and professionally with artists in classical music as well as popular music, film music and shows. Danish Chamber Orchestra is dedicated to being an orchestra for everyone.
