Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie
The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen is one of the world's leading chamber orchestras. The Estonian star conductor Paavo Järvi has been the orchestra's Artistic Director since 2004.
After two years of working together, the success of this artistic collaboration speaks for itself. 'The event of the summer', wrote the New York Times in August 2005. For Die Welt, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen is »one of the most transparent and sensitive orchestras today«. And for Vienna's Standard, the concert of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen with Paavo Järvi in August 2004 was one of the 'rare surprises of the past summer's Salzburg Festival' in which the orchestra established itself once and for all in the international ensemble jet set.
The primary focus of the collaboration between Paavo Järvi and the orchestra - and thus the basis for these glowing reviews - is the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven. What might appear to be pure routine and preservation of musical monuments, during the concerts usually prove to be spirited and highly competent new versions of these often-heard works. Read more
