Artists biographies
Bamberg Symphony Orchestra

The Bamberg Symphony has always enjoyed a special status in the music world. Almost 7,000 concerts in more than 60 countries and 500 cities – with that record, the Bamberg Symphony is rightly considered the German touring orchestra. Evidence of the outstanding reputation it enjoys everywhere comes in constant invitations to visit leading festivals such as Lucerne Festival, Beethovenfest Bonn, Edinburgh International Festival or the London Proms, to tour at home and abroad and perform at the most important concert halls, and in prizes for the Orchestra’s recordings, e.g. the MIDEM Classical Award, the International »Toblach Composing Hut« Record Prize or the ECHO Klassik.

That reputation is also in no small part due to the Principal and Guest Conductors who have led and shaped the Bamberg Symphony over the decades. Since January 2000, the Orchestra’s artistic direction has been in the hands of Jonathan Nott (until 2016). Alongside him, Herbert Blomstedt has also played a distinguished role in Bamberg as Honorary Conductor since March 2006.
