Press Information

The NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra has been North Germany’s musical ambassador to the world for more than 75 years. The orchestra in residence at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, its programmes significantly shape the artistic profile of its home venue on the Elbe. Under the guidance of its principal conductor Alan Gilbert, whose contract was recently extended until 2029, the orchestra has once again launched a diversified and innovative expansion of its programme. In various event formats ranging from symphony concerts to chamber, club and hour concerts to festivals lasting several days, works of all genres from the baroque to the present day are on the programme. Beyond these activities, however, the ensemble is also aware of its social responsibility and is particularly committed to the support of young musicians and education. Its international standing becomes apparent on its tours through Europe, to North and South America and regularly to Asia, where it will return in the 2023/24 season with stops in Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo.
