NDR Symphony Orchestra Changes its Name to NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra


HAMBURG, Germany, Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

     The NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra will formally open the spectacular new

concert hall Elbphilharmonie on 11 January 2017 under the direction of its

music director Thomas Hengelbrock. After an eventful history of more than 70

years, from the 2016/17 season the orchestra will have both a new musical home

and will serve as the artistic ambassador of this new landmark of the harbour

city Hamburg. Therefore, from 16/17 season onwards, to reflect its new status

as the Elbphilharmonie's orchestra in residence, the orchestra will become

known as the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra.

    The orchestra of the NDR can look back on a glittering history, including

its extraordinary foundation story. Founded in July 1945 under British

occupation, it gave its first public concert on 1 November 1945. Famous

principal conductors such as Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt, Klaus Tennstedt, John

Eliot Gardiner, Herbert Blomstedt, Christoph Eschenbach and Christoph von

Dohnanyi have influenced the sound and the profile of the orchestra. The

twenty-year-long intensive collaboration with Guenter Wand as well as the

Schmidt-Isserstedt era rank among the highlights of its history.

    Thomas Hengelbrock has led the orchestra since 2011. He has opened a new

chapter in the history of the orchestra through his flexible interpretations

and his openness towards all musical genres and types of events.

    Succeeding Alan Gilbert, Krzysztof Urbanski, born in 1982, is the current

principal guest conductor and contributes to the dynamic and progressive

orientation of the ensemble.

    Since the 1950s, the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra has won worldwide

recognition through many internationally acclaimed CD recordings and intensive

touring within Europe, in Asia and in the USA. In April 2016, the NDR

Elbphilharmonie Orchestra is launching a unique five-year educational project

throughout China, accompanied by further extensive concert tours in Asia.

Beyond its concerts, the orchestra can also be heard around the world through

not only radio broadcasts but also via the internet by means of video

live-streams and presentations on its own Youtube channel.
