After several successful European and overseas tours in 2017 and 2018 the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne (Germany) is coming back to the United Kingdom and Ireland in the summer of 2019 with a powerful and lovely new programme.
“Classical music the world over” – this is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant for their musicians whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House – their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
The objective is simple – to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music. The popularity of their ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with their exceptionally talented musicians.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name they bear: Cologne. The city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching. Generations of musicians have been trained there for many decades who, in terms of their musicality, are unparalleled around the world. Taking advantage of this pool of talent, a stock of outstanding musicians has accrued that in a changing cast of musicians take their motto across the world.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is at home all over the world. Their tours regularly take then to New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland and many other countries - and of course to Germany. In this context, the selection of works and soloists takes on a special significance. The multifaceted composition of the ensemble provides every member of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne with the opportunity to perform as a soloist.
The permanently expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces. The real appeal of their programme lies in the meeting of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. This mix promises great diversity of the very highest order, without them having to preach to the audience in the process. After all, music is for entertainment and not for instruction.
To inspire people across the world to enjoy classical music – that’s what they view as their maxim!
Quite simply: Classical music the world over!
