Deutsche Streicherphilharmonie

The string orchestra’s story began more than 30 years ago at the “10th World Youth and Student Festival 1973” held in what was then East Berlin, when the festival needed its own orchestra.
The national Youth String Orchestra of Music Schools of the GDR was contacted. This ensemble was founded by its conductor Helmut Koch, who also founded the Berlin Radio Orchestra (Rundfunkorchester) and was Music Director of the Berlin Singakademie. The elite ensemble was soon engaged by radio and television to perform in productions and broadcasts as the “Rundfunk-Musikschulorchester” (RMO) and performed to wide acclaim in Germany and abroad. The string orchestra has performed many times at events such as the Handel Festival in Halle, the international Bachfest in Leipzig, the Dresdner Musikfestspiele, the EXPO in Hanover, the Schauspielhaus in Berlin, at Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, in Cologne’s Philharmonie and at many other concert venues throughout Germany. The orchestra has completed highly successful international concert tours to Poland, Russia, France, Spain, Finland, Norway, China and Malaysia. Herbert Kegel (1974) and then Wolf-Dieter Hauschild (1976) succeeded Helmut Koch, who died in 1975, with Winfried Müller ultimately taking over leadership of the orchestra. In 1984—taking turns with Max Pommer (1986/87)—Jörg-Peter Weigle, Principal Conductor of the Dresdner Philharmonie, was engaged as the ensemble’s regular conductor. Until 1995, he molded the orchestra’s artistic development, giving it his own distinctive style. Hanns-Martin Schneidt served as Artistic Director of the ensemble from 1995 to 2002. In 2003 he handed leadership of the orchestra over to Michael Sanderling, who in 2002 had performed with the ensemble as soloist on their tour of Spain and had stepped in as conductor at short notice. From its inception, members of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchesters Berlin (RSB)
have acted as teachers to the various players in the Deutsche Streicherphilharmonie.
