Haydn’s “Creation” with Sir Simon
As chief conductor of the Chor and Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Sir Simon Rattle dedicates his inaugural concert to both. Starting with Haydn’s The Creation was out of the question for Simon Rattle: “It has everything in it. The whole world.” The soloists in the performance are Lucy Crowe (soprano), Benjamin Bruns (tenor) and Christian Gerhaher (baritone). The concerts in Munich’s Herkulessaal will take place September 21-22, with BR-KLASSIK broadcasting live on the radio on September 22. On September 24, the orchestra will be a guest at the Basilica in Ottobeuren. You can follow this concert in the video livestream.

MEET THE BRSO
In the future, we will introduce you to musicians of the BRSO in a more personal way. We’ll start with Emma Schied, British-born oboist in the BRSO since 2016. Who is her greatest role model? Where her favorite place in Munich? And what would she do if she had the BRSO container to herself for one night? She told us all this and much more in our little questionnaire.
You can find an overview of all BRSO musicians here.

Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Soon after its founding in 1949 by Eugen Jochum, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (BRSO) developed into an internationally highly regarded orchestra. It was among the top ten orchestras worldwide in the orchestra rankings of the British trade magazine Gramophone (“The world’s greatest orchestras”) as well as in the Japanese music magazine “Mostly Classic”. Sir Simon Rattle will be the new principal conductor of the Bavarian Radio Chorus and Symphony Orchestra from the 23/24 season.
The orchestra regularly works with renowned conductors and soloists in its concerts in Munich as well as on tours worldwide and can look back on numerous CD releases and awards, including the GRAMMY in the category “Best Orchestral Performance” and the “German Record Critics’ Award”. The promotion of young musicians and the cultivation of new music are also among the orchestra’s core tasks.
