DRESDEN/GERMANY: For the past five years, the Dresden Philharmonic have been effectively homeless. Since the Kulturpalast (Palace of Culture) closed its bronze entrance doors in July 2012 and preparations began on the construction of a concert hall with acoustics worthy of the Dresden Philharmonic, this illustrious local orchestra was without a place to call their own. The Dresden Philharmonic look foreward to new acoustics – and to having their own individual lockers. The new culture palace will be inaugurated 28th – 30th April 2017.

“We look forward to performing in an auditorium that has intimacy, warmth and atmosphere as well as great acoustics.”

Says Michael Sanderling, chief conductor of the Dresden Philharmonic

BRILLIANT OPENING PROGRAM:

Of course, A new piece – world premiere, and some well known pieces with relations to Dresden are chosen for the opening program. Ludwig van Beethoven‘s 9th Symphony, which ends with the EU “National Anthem”: Ode to Joy.

Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdys Violin Concerto with Julia Fischer as violin soloist and a World premiere of “Chinese Lieder” by Krystoph Penderecki, song by Matthias Goerne. All led by Michael Sanderling.
