Bamberg, one of the few German cities spared by bombing during the Second World War, had the desire to establish a symphony orchestra in 1946. The incisive conductor Joseph Keilberth gathered members of the former German Philharmonic Orchestra of Prague to create the famous Bamberger Symphoniker. The orchestra stands out as one of Germany's finest musical ambassadors. Its way of playing marked by a crisp brilliance in the brass section and soft precision in the strings is representative of a style deeply rooted in the legendary Bohemian cradle of talented European musicians. The young and brilliant conductor Jakub Hrůša will bring the cultural and musical emblem of Bohemia to Lugano with Bedřich Smetana's symphonic cycle Má Vlast.
Má vlast (La mia patria), six symphonic poems
