Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin

Over the course of its many years as a first-tier European concert orchestra, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Germany’s oldest broadcast ensemble, has definitively established itself while also coming into its own as an outstanding representative of Berlin culture.

The core repertoire of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, which has cultivated a particularly strong focus on new music since its inception, encompasses the symphonic music of all eras, from the pre-classical period to contemporary music. For more than 50 years now, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra has been as much at home on the finest stages across Germany and the world as it has been in Berlin.

In addition to its public concerts, the orchestra also makes major broadcast appearances and CD productions. The history of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra can be traced back to October of 1923, when the first musical broadcast hour hit the radio waves in Germany. Its conductors shaped an ensemble that was to accompany Germany in a singular way through the twists and turns of its 20th-century history until 1994, when it joined forces with the Rundfunk-Orchester and -Chöre GmbH Berlin established that same year.
