Bamberg Symphony Orchestra to perform at the Shenzhen Concert Hall
Not many people may have heard of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, and those who have heard them probably have love them music. Most people are familiar with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and they are perfect and accurate in delivering each and every note but lacks character.
Bamberg Symphony with its history of 64 years, have details, momentum, and a unique voice in interpreting classical masters and contemporary composers as well. On December 31st and the 1st of January people will be able to enjoy the orchestra when they perform two concerts at the Shenzhen Concert Hall and in Beijing and Shanghai.
Conducted by its principal conductor Jonathan Nott, the December 31 program will include music from Wagner’s opera Tristan und Isolde, Symphony No. 40 in G Minor by Mozart and Brahms Symphony No. 4 in E Minor. The New Year’s Day will cater more to the taste of the general public, doing pieces Beethoven’s Coriolanus Overture, Dvorak’s Slavic Dance and Beethoven Symphony No. 9. The Chinese audience have outgrown the Viennese new year concert and this year’s choices reflects the maturing taste of Shenzhen audiences.
The symphony was first formed in 1946 by German musicians expelled from Czechoslovakia, the orchestra then found a home in the small German town of Bamberg. Musicians in the orchestra have been members of the German Philharmonic Orchestra of Prague. The voice of Bamberg is fresh, soothing and transparent. Sharing something in common with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra.
