His Royal Highness Crown Prince Guillaume holds the High Patronage of the Orchestre de Chambre de Luxembourg.
The OCL is delighted to open the 2017/2018 season. After several years under Devid Reiland, whose musical direction led the ensemble along an artistic path focused on excellence, the board of the orchestra has decided to appoint the much sought-after Austrian conductor Florian Krumpöck as principal conductor of the OCL. Under the combined direction of Jean Muller (artistic director) and Krumpöck, the orchestra is committed to continuing the work of the past years as it continues to widen the range of its activities.
The performance of the complete cycle of Schubert’s symphonies during the philharmonic cycle is the most notable event scheduled. On this occasion, the OCL will, for the first time, play part of the cycle in the Grand Auditorium of the Philharmonie concert hall. The public will also be able to enjoy two eagerly-awaited premiers of Luxembourg composers as well as performances by many very fine soloists, such as pianist Valentina Lisitsa. The orchestra’s residence at the Kinneksbond will result in several major collaborative projects, notably with the Opéra-Théâtre de Metz and the Chœur de Chambre de Luxembourg. Several other concerts will complete the season, including the traditional concerts for Advent and New Year.
Sign up now for one of our cycles and discover the rich musical programme of a season that promises to be enthralling in more ways than one.
