“From the warmth of the first horn chords and the airy lightness of the violins in the first movement, to the grandeur of the finale, the Hamburg’s performance was all one hoped for. There were moments when sections or individuals shone... when the orchestra itself seemed to dance." Newsday
“The Orchestra played with intense dedication, a suave style and a string tone so sumptuous that it was like silk.” The Post and Courier
“It was a satisfying end to an enjoyable afternoon, and this performance, which was vigorously applauded… the Hamburg Symphony is an ensemble worth watching.” Orlando Sentinel
Founded in 1957, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra is a highly recognized and greatly respected component of Europe's cultural life. The 2007 US tour marked the orchestra's United States debut; the orchestra performed works by Tchaikovsky and Bruch. In the spring of 2008, Jeffrey Tate joined the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra as its new Chief Conductor.
The Hamburg Symphony Orchestra's 2012 US tour included the performance of Olivier Messiaen’s orchestral masterpiece “Des Canyons aux Etoiles” (From Canyons to Stars) in cooperation with the unique film and orchestra installation by visual artist Daniel Landau. “Des Canyons aux Etoiles” invokes the eternal beauty of North American nature.
