Owing to the measures decided by the Federal Council on 28 October 2020, we are unfortunately obliged to cancel the tour with the Wiener Symphoniker from 13 to 15 November 2020 as well as the concert of 19 November in the KKL with the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées. Subscribers will receive a pro-rata refund at the end of the 2020/21 season. Single tickets will be refunded at the respective box offices.
Since the measures decided by the Federal Council are not limited in time, concert planning is difficult at the moment. Our promise nevertheless remains the same:
We will do our best to provide you with a classical live experience of the highest quality throughout the 20/21 season.
By founding the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées in 1991, Philippe Herreweghe provided the French music scene with the quality ensemble playing on original instruments that it lacked. In doing so, the conductor added a new orchestra to his series of ensembles that he had specially designed for the exploration of given musical eras. The Orchestre des Champs-Élysées focuses on symphonic works and oratorios of the Classical and Romantic periods, as well as the classics of the XXth century, performed on the instruments of the respective periods. Several award-winning recordings of works by Mozart and Beethoven, but also Berlioz, Bruckner and Mahler resulted from this initiative. Guest conductors invited by the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées include included Daniel Harding, René Jacobs and Heinz Holliger. This Paris-based orchestra has toured Asia, Australia and the USA and performed in major venues in London, Berlin, Vienna and Amsterdam. Musicological research and educational projects complement the activities of the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées.
