Orchestra of the Year Award nominee: Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Gramophone Orchestra of the Year

Gramophone Orchestra of the Year

One of the world’s finest ensembles, the Bavarian RSO – founded in 1949 – has been in the excellent care of Mariss Jansons since 2003. He’s one of the great orchestra trainers and the standard of playing he and the orchestra’s guests conductors draw from this Munich-based group is mighty impressive. His recently released Rachmaninov recording, combining The Bells and the Symphonic Dances, has colour, precision of intonation and wonderful rhythmic control combined with a rare sense of fantasy – qualities that also ignite a work you wouldn’t associate with Jansons, Varèse’s Amériques. A live Mahler Third from 2016, under Bernard Haitink, also recently released by BR-Klassik, reveals a highly responsive Mahler ensemble on top form.
