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. Andrew Manze has been the Principal Conductor of the orchestra since the 2014-15 season.

Lars Vogt has established himself as one of the leading musicians of his generation. Born in the German town of Düren in 1970, he first came to public attention when he won Second Prize at the 1990 Leeds International Piano Competition and has enjoyed a varied career for nearly 25 years. He joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2, premiered in 1795 with young Beethoven as soloist, marking the composer’s public debut.

After waiting many years to complete his First Symphony, Brahms produced a second one during his summer holiday. It has a largely bucolic, even rustic character, and includes a folksy, dancing third movement. The composer wrote of the surroundings in which the Second Symphony was created (the Austrian lakeside village of Pörtschach) that ‘…the melodies flow so freely that one must be careful not to trample on them’.
