• Mozart – Concerto in G Major for Flute and Orchestra KV 313

The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra (Junge Philharmonie Köln) was founded in 1972. It is mainly composed of graduates of the most important German conservatories who wish to experience the reality of a practical musical life playing chamber music and symphonic repertoire at a high level, before furthering their careers as soloists or as members of full-time professional orchestras.
The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra is, in essence, a chamber orchestra comprised of soloists, which expands several times a year to a full symphony orchestra.
The Orchestra is self-managed and is one of the very few groups in Germany to operate entirely without subsidy - these days very unusual.
Te group has, over the years, developed its own highly individual style of interpretation - engaging and direct while still remaining true to the intentions of the composer.
Tickets are available at Ticketek outlets and at old St. Paul’s Church one hour prior to the concert (from 7pm).
