Schumann with Isabelle Faust

In the Symphony concert 6 François-Xavier Roth pursues the thematic focus on Robert Schumann. Isabelle Faust, one of the greatest violin virtuosos of our time, will perform his technically extremely difficult violin concerto, which has been unrecognised for many years until it made its way into the repertoire of the virtuosos. Furthermore, François-Xavier Roth will present Gustav Mahler's 5th symphony, which was premiered by the Gürzenich-Orchester in 1904.

ICMA Award 2019

Great news from the International Classical Music Awards. The recording of Sibelius 2 by the Gürzenich-Orchester and Dmitrij Kitajenko won the Symphonic Music Award 2019! »In Sibelius’ Second Symphony Dmitrij Kitajenko comes closer to the spirit of the score than a lot of other conductors, and his performance is one the most atmospheric and gripping available on disc. With extremely rich and differentiated textures, it breathes with stunning immediacy and impact. The playing of the Gürzenich Orchestra is superlative throughout.«

Ohrenauf turns 20!

Ohrenauf, the programme for children and teenagers, celebrates it's 20th anniversary. Therefore, the Gürzenich-Orchester Köln invites families to the Kölner Philharmonie to take part in a huge birthday concert for Gürzi, the mascot of Ohrenauf. Together with children from Cologne and the audience, Gürzi will be looking for earworms. And there will also be a big surprise!
