Biography

The Junge Deutsche Philharmonie brings together excellent young musicians from German-language music academies, selected through auditions, and forms them into a musically demanding ensemble. In addition to the symphonic repertoire there are focuses on contemporary and on early music. It is part of the democratic constitution of the orchestra that its musicians serve on numerous committees. Through work in the Executive Committee, program planning and thematic workshops as well as educational outreach, members of the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie acquire qualifications that go beyond musical performance. Thus, it forms an important link between the education offered by music academies and professional careers. The orchestra members, aged 18 to 28, meet several times a year for concentrated rehearsal periods, followed by international concert tours and guest appearances. With its own biennial festival FREISPIEL, the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie has also made its mark on cultural life in Frankfurt, offering cross-genre and experimental event formats.

The Junge Deutsche Philharmonie works regularly with internationally renowned artists. Since 2014, Jonathan Nott has been its Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor; the appointment was made immediately after their first collaboration, a Mahler project in the spring of 2013. He follows Lothar Zagrosek who moulded the orchestra as Principal Guest Conductor and Artistic Advisor from 1995 to 2014.
