Sächsische Bläserphilharmonie

When looking at the history of European music, one sees the long tradition of independent music making for diverse wind ensembles, both liturgically and secularly. The range spans from the diverse ways of the town piper and the music of the council and court, over to the genres of classical Harmoniemusik and the romantic wind serenade, and up to the tutti sound of the modern symphony orchestra. There are countless composers and ensembles whose names are associated with this genre.

Linking itself to this rich heritage for more than a half century, the Saxon Wind Philharmonic is the only German classical ensemble specializing in such music. Faithful, lively interpretations and instrumental perfection ensure great public appeal and demonstrate the high artistic standards that the ensemble sets upon itself. The orchestra’s own academy, founded in 1995, is a testament to the pedagogical ethos of the Philharmonic Wind Orchestra and its commitment to continuity.

With Thomas Clamor as its principal conductor since 2001, the orchestra has taken significant artistic steps towards its recognition as a symphonic concert orchestra. Acclaim by both the public and critics for CD, DVD and TV productions as well as an increased number of concerts, both in Germany and abroad, define the increased standard of quality.

The orchestra has served numerous times as a cultural ambassador on concert tours to China, Venezuela and Australia. In cooperation with the public music education program in Venezuela, known worldwide as El Sistema, as well as with Notenschlüssel zur Integration (“Keys for Integration”), a sustainable and highly publicized musical project in Germany, the musicians offer up-to-date impulses through the unique possibilities of a creative orchestral community.
