RHEINLAND-PFALZ STATE PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz was founded in Landau in 1919. Overseen by the State of Rhineland-Palatinate since 1998, the Staatsphilharmonie is the largest and most important orchestra of the state, thus contributing to essential orchestral provision in the Palatinate. It is also considered the symphony orchestra of the metropolitan region Rhine-Neckar. Regionally and internationally, it acts as the envoy of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate. Its stylistic range extends from the great symphonies and music theatre productions to film music and silent film projects.

Even during its founding years, with conductors such as Richard Strauss and Hermann Abendroth, the orchestra drew cross-regional attention. In particular, principal conductors such as Christoph Eschenbach and Leif Segerstam—today the honorary conductor of the orchestra—helped the orchestra gain an international reputation. Steffens has been artistic director since the summer of 2009. On his initiative and under his aegis, productions have included the multi-year cycle ‘Beethoven and the 20th Century’ and the nationally renowned ‘Ring Halle Ludwigshafen’. The metropolitan region summer music festival Modern Times with a focus at the beginning of the season on music of the 20th century and the summer residence of the orchestra in Speyer also began under Steffen’s aegis and annually brings together music lovers from the region and celebrated international artists at different locations.

Subscription series of the orchestra take place in the state capital Mainz, in the Rosengarten in Mannheim and in the Concert House in Karlsruhe. In its ‘residential city’ of Ludwigshafen, the Staatsphilharmonie is equally present with its concerts in in the concert hall of the Pfalzbau and in the BASF Feierabendhaus.

In addition, the orchestra contributes to international music life with many guest appearances. The Staatsphilharmonie holds regular guest concerts in the major concert halls in and outside Europe and is a popular guest at major international music festivals.
