FREIBURG PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The Freiburg Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1887 and quickly established itself as the official orchestra of the city at the Theater Freiburg. There was early collaboration with musicians such as Clara Schumann and Richard Strauss. The Freiburg Concert Hall has served the orchestra as a second home since its opening in 1996.

With a hundred performances annually, also appearing as the opera orchestra, the Philharmonic has for many years been involved in chamber music series and in regular work with children and young people, with concerts and collaborations with schools in Freiburg and in the region.

Composers such as Wolfgang Rihm, Manfred Trojahn and Reinhard Febel have written works for the orchestra. The orchestra has played under leading conductors, including Franz Konwitschny, Marek Janowski, Adam Fischer and Donald Runnicles. Fabrice Bollon has been general music director since the 2008–09 season.

The orchestra has been nominated several times as the orchestra of the year in the professional journal Opernwelt and was awarded the German Music Publisher’s Prize for the best programme in the 1998–99 and 2011–12 seasons. Among the orchestra’s many recent albums, the award-winning Francesca da Rimini was highly praised as a reference recording.
