Biography

Since 2002, the beginning of the era of Marek Janowski as artistic leader and chief conductor, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin has earned itself a prominent position among the top Berlin orchestras as well as among the German radio orchestras. The remarkable level achieved under Marek Janowski has made the RSB highly attractive to top international conductors. The orchestra also has a stable relationship with prominent conductors of the younger generation, such as Andris Nelsons, Kristjan Järvi, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Marc Albrecht.

 
The RSB is the oldest radio symphony orchestra in Germany, and was founded in the early days of radio in October 1923. Under its various chief conductors – including Sergiu Celibidache, Eugen Jochum, Hermann Abendroth, Rolf Kleinert, Heinz Rögner, and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos – the RSB has become a flexible symphonic orchestra, where great composers of the 20th century have also been happy to conduct their own works. These have included Paul Hindemith, Richard Strauss and Arnold Schönberg, to mention a few. 
 
Together with Deutschlandradio, the RSB is available for radio and CD recordings, alongside its public concerts. Numerous recordings made by the orchestra have received renowned international prizes. 
 
The RSB receives regular invitations to perform at the major European festivals and music centres, as well as in Asia.
