Whenever major orchestras in Germany or abroad plan to perform a choral work it is invariably the MDR LEIPZIG RADIO CHOIR, regarded as one of the best in the world, that comes at the top of their wish list. The ensemble lives up to this reputation not only as an excellent partner for major orchestras in choral symphonic works, but also with its highly acclaimed and unusual a cappella performances. A wide-ranging repertoire encompasses practically a thousand years of musical history and has included numerous world premieres. Whether via the European Broadcasting Union, through touring, in guest performances worldwide or with its nearly 200 LPs and CDs – many of them award-winning – , the MDR LEIPZIG RADIO CHOIR, which received the European Cultural Prize in 2013, acts as a supreme musical ambassador for central Germany. From the season 2015/2016 Risto Joost succeeds Howard Arman as artistic director of the MDR LEIPZIG RADIO CHOIR, while Philipp Ahmann remains principal guest conductor.
