At the beginning of the 2017/2018 season Ivan Repušić became principal conductor of the Munich Radio Orchestra.
The percussionist Simone Rubino is the artist in residence at the Munich Radio Orchestra for the 2018/2019 season. He will be performing three concerts with the orchestra.
Sensational coup for the Munich Radio Orchestra: two CD recordings with Véronique Gens have won the 2018 International Classical Music Award (ICMA): Proserpine by Camille Saint-Saëns (cond. Ulf Schirmer) and Visions with arias by Bizet, Halévy, Massenet and others (cond. Hervé Niquet).
Over the course of more than 65 years of history the Munich Radio Orchestra has developed to an ensemble with a wideranging artistic spectrum. Concert performances of operas featuring renowned vocal soloists at Sunday Concerts and the “Paradisi gloria” series presenting sacred music from the 20th and 21st centuries, children’s and young people’s concerts with supplementary educational programs, entertaining theme evenings called “Wednesdays at 7:30” and music from film scores. Proof that the Munich Radio Orchestra has its hand on the pulse of the times can be found in the regularly recurring crossover programs linking classics and pop.
