The renowned Munich Philharmonic returns to Ljubljana after eight years. Originally founded in 1893 by Franz Kaim, the orchestra, under the leadership of a series of distinguished conductors, has left an indelible mark on the culture and musical life of the city of Munich. The charismatic conductor Sergiu Celibidache, who led the orchestra between 1979 and 1996, instilled in it a heightened feeling for responsive playing, a characteristic more usually found in chamber ensembles. The orchestra is also distinguished by its nobility of interpretation, commitment to contemporary music and efforts to make orchestral music accessible to all the people. It is particularly famous for its legendary performances of Bruckner’s symphonies and its innovative repertoire. Even a hundred years ago it was winning fame with its world tours and its reputation continued to grow throughout the twentieth century. Notable conductors have included Gustav Mahler, Ferdinand Löwe, Oswald Kabasta, James Levine, Christian Thielemann and Lorin Maazel. In 2004 Zubin Mehta was named the first „honorary conductor” in the history of the orchestra. As of the 2015/16 season, the position of chief conductor is held by Valery Gergiev. Soloist Piotr Anderszewski is a pianist known for his interpretive expressivity and originality and a winner of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award, given every four years to a pianist of outstanding talent. The Munich Philharmonic will be conducted by Grammy award winning conductor Paavo Järvi.

The honorary patron of the event is His Excellency Klaus Peter Riedel, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany.
