Deutsche Streicherphilharmonie

The enthusiasm of the best string instrumentalists from music schools all over Germany is combined in the Deutsche Streicherphilharmonie (DSP). The ensemble was founded in East Berlin as the GDR's Radio Music School Orchestra in 1973. In 1991 it was re-named the German Music School Orchestra and was taken over by the Association of German Music Schools under the auspices of the government Ministry of families, senior citizens, women and youth.

The first conductor of the ensemble after Germany's reunification was Jörg-Peter Weigle, who was followed by Hanns-Martin Schneidt. He in turn handed over the baton to Michael Sanderling in 2003. During the anniversary summer of 2013, Wolfgang Hentrich became the artistic director of the DSP. The ensemble also works together with conductors such as Gerd Albrecht (†) and Marek Janowski as well as with well-known instrumental virtuosi such as Julia Fischer, Daniel Hope, Nils Mönkemeyer and Kim Suyoen.

From the outset, members of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra have acted as tutors to the orchestra. The continuity of this musical assistance is responsible, in particular, for the unique and homogenous sound quality of the string ensemble.

The DSP tours annually throughout Germany; it has, however, also left a lasting impression in countries abroad such as Poland, Russia, Spain, China and Ecuador. Many former members of the DSP now play in renowned orchestras in Germany and abroad.

With its intense musical training, this leading young ensemble is a starting point for committed and qualified musicians who aspire to play in top orchestras or have solo careers. Many former members are now to be found in famous orchestras, such as the Vienna Philharmonic, the Munich Philharmonic, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Saxon State Orchestra Dresden and the New York Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
