The National Youth Orchestra of Germany (Bundesjugendorchester), which brings together young musicians between the ages of 14 and 19, was founded by the German Music Council in 1969, and has been an official partner of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra since 2013.

Sir Simon Rattle has been Conductor Laureate of the National Youth Orchestra of Germany since 2018. The young musicians have the opportunity to work together with renowned conductors, including Herbert von Karajan, Kurt Masur, Gerd Albrecht, Gustavo Dudamel, Andris Nelsons, Ingo Metzmacher and Kirill Petrenko. The orchestra frequently tours the world as a cultural ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany. 

The National Youth Orchestra of Germany starts a new concert year together with an old friend, Christian Tetzlaff. The world-renowned violinist, who was a member and concertmaster of this orchestra between 1979 and 1983, will be the soloist in Fantasy in G minor, Op. 24 for violin and orchestra by Josef Suk. During the intensive rehearsal periods before their international tours, the orchestra prepares challenging works from all historical eras; the evening’s programme thus opens with Variations for Orchestra by Italian composer Luigi Dallapiccola and concludes with the Symphony No. 11 by Dmitri Shostakovich. Francesco Angelico, General Music Director of the Hessisches Staatstheater Kassel, will conduct the orchestra for the first time.

The honorary guest of the concert is the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Nataša Pirc Musar, who will attend the event with her spouse.



I love this orchestra. You play beautifully and you are our future. With the music in your hands, I am full of hope.
Sir Simon Rattle
