Diversity and quality are the trademarks of the NDR Radiophilharmonie from Hanover. 86 highly skilled musicians represent an impressively diverse programme: in addition to a large classic-romantic repertoire, early music is also cultivated. Cross-over projects, film music, and a broad range of concerts for children and youth reach a wide audience. International top artists compliment the musical work of the NDR Radiophilharmonie. These include leading soloists and conductors like Anne-Sophie Mutter, Hilary Hahn, Rudolf Buchbinder, Andris Nelsons, Gustavo Dudamel, Andrés Orozco-Estrada and Krzysztof Urbański, or specialists in early music like Reinhard Goebel, Giuliano Carmignola and Philippe Jaroussky.
This diversity is tradition for the NDR Radiophilharmonie. The orchestra of the broadcasting station in Hanover was founded in 1950, however the roots of the ensemble reach back to the 1920s, when Hanover's first radio station was started up. Because of the special broadcasting requirements, artistic excellence was desired in a variety of musical styles from the beginning. The NDR Radiophilharmonie is also held in high esteem internationally as a musical ambassador for Hanover and Lower Saxony. Recently the radio orchestra presented itself on concert tours in Japan and South America, among other places, also giving guest performances at the Pisa Festival, the Norwegian Bergen International Festival or clubhouse concerts in Switzerland. In October 2011, the orchestra had its celebrated debut at the sold-out Royal Albert Hall in London. Other highlights include concerts at the Wiener Musikverein and the Festspielhaus Salzburg. The ensemble's concerts are broadcast regularly on the radio and can be heard all around the world on the internet.
