“Classical music the world over” – this is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant to our musicians whether they are playing in a small village church, in the open air, in the Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House – their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
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 here 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, and in a changing cast of musicians, take our motto across the world.
Since November 2009, the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne has developed a very special partnership with the Mercedes-Benz Centre in Cologne. As part of their creative cooperation, Mercedes-Benz provides the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne with a very special tour bus. It enables our musicians to travel quickly and comfortably to the many varied concert locations. In return, the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne, organises special concerts for the car company’s VIP customers. The remarkable construction of the Mercedes-Benz Center in Cologne is transformed into a spectacular, top-class concert palace.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is at home all over the world. Our tours regularly take us 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 our program 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 us 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 we view as our maxim!
Quite simply – Classical music the world over!
