Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg

Biography

Whilst remaining firmly rooted in the great European symphonic tradition, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra follows a unique path. From the outset, its history was linked to that of radio. In 1996, changes in the world of radio led to the orchestra being taken over by the Luxembourg government, which incorporated it in a foundation set up specifically for this purpose, called the Fondation Henri Pensis after the first principal conductor. This enables the orchestra to fulfil its public role and distinguish itself in the European music world by the impressive range of its activities and the quality of its performances. Henri Pensis, Louis de Froment, Leopold Hager, David Shallon and Bramwell Tovey have been music directors of the orchestra in its 75-year long existence. Emmanuel Krivine is the music director and chief conductor since September 2006.
