About

Before moving into the Elbphilharmonie, chief conductor Thomas Hengelbrock and his NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester performed a ‘Brahms Marathon’ with all four symphonies of the Hamburg-born composer in the historic Laeiszhalle. Brahms’s music has always played an important role in the history of the orchestra, whose defining interpretations of the symphonies by Brahms and Bruckner have become the ensemble’s artistic hallmark. The orchestra, founded in 1945, was led by outstanding conductors such as Günter Wand, Christoph Eschenbach and Christoph von Dohnányi. Since 2011, chief conductor Thomas Hengelbrock is in charge of continuing the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester’s history.

In the bonus programme Discovering Brahms, Thomas Hengelbrock offers interesting background information on all four symphonies. ‘The evening was more than worth it’ (Hamburger Abendblatt).
