The Beethoven Philharmonie unites Viennese tradition and refinement as well as historically informed performance practice with a fresh musical approach.
Members of established Austrian orchestras play alongside international chamber musicians and highly talented young musicians, creating together a unique spirit, which distinguishes the Beethoven Philharmonie from many other orchestras. A strong collective energy and the joy in music- making carries the audience along with the performers.
Among a broad repertoire, ranging from the Baroque to contemporary music, the Viennese Classics such as Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven as well as the symphonic works of Franz Schubert are the main focus of the orchestra. Representing Viennese tradition, the Beethoven Philharmonie ist also very much in demand for performances of the music by the Strauss dynasty.
The Beethoven Philharmonie has its own subscription concert series in the Grand Casino of Baden, Austria – one of Beethoven’s favorite towns, full of great cultural history and located in the very heart of Europe.
The orchestra has performed with many well-known soloists such as Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon, Till Fellner, Elisabeth Kulman, Daniela Fally, Eva Lind, Steve Davislim and Paul Gulda.
The Beethoven Philharmonie regularly participates in a highly successful series of educational concerts known as “KlassiX” at the renowned Musikverein in Vienna and is part of the festival “operklosterneuburg“ where it has performed many operas in the baroque Imperial Court at the Klosterneuburg Monastery.
The orchestra has been invited to play at renowned festivals such as the Bruckner International Festival in Linz, Klangbogen in Vienna, the Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt as well as on tours in China, Switzerland, Germany, Spain or Poland.
Thomas Rösner is the founder and artistic director of the Beethoven Philharmonie.
