Under the musical and artistic direction of Aziz Shokhakimov from this season, the Orchestre philharmonique de Strasbourg ranks as one of the major orchestras in France, with the label of “National Orchestra” being awarded in 1994. With 110 permanent musicians perpetuating its dual French/German tradition, the Orchestra is engaged in an ambitious project centred on symphonic music targeting all types of audiences and performs over 100 concerts every year. Its international renown is constantly enhanced by its dynamic audio-visual coverage.
The Orchestra boasts a vast repertoire from the 18th century to the present day for which internationally renowned conductors and soloists are invited, but it is also greatly attached to promoting a new generation of artists.
The Orchestra has also adopted an extensive audio-visual policy with a number of media partners, thereby ensuring visibility on a national and international scale.
The Orchestra contributes to Strasbourg’s outreach in France, performing regularly at the Philharmonie de Paris, and throughout Europe in the most prestigious concert halls.
With an impressive discography to its name, the Orchestra caused a sensation with its recording of two landmark opuses by Berlioz: Les Troyens and La Damnation de Faust, unanimously acclaimed by critics worldwide. The release of the CD BariTenor with Michael Spyres in September 21 has been widely acclaimed and awarded. Two recordings of opuses dedicated to Janáček and Prokofiev under the Warner label are still to be released this season.
