Haydn: Complete Symphonies, Vol. 25 / Klumpp, Heidelberger Sinfoniker
The Heidelberger Sinfoniker have named conductor Johannes Klumpp as their Artistic Director for the 2020/2021 season. In so doing, they have chosen him as successor to their founder Thomas Fey, who established the “Heidelberg Symphonists” as one of the leading historically informed orchestras for the Classical and early Romantic periods. Johannes Klumpp was educated in Weimar and is Principal Conductor of the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra of Essen and Artistic Director of the Summer Music Academy at Schloss Hundisburg. As guest conductor, he has stood before notable orchestras such as the Dresden Festspielorchester, the Stuttgart Staatsorchester, the MDR Symphony Orchestra, the Düsseldorf Symphony, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra and many more. Johannes Klumpp has already attracted attention with his interpretations and recordings of the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and is regarded as an established expert on period performance practice. Together we aim to focus our eyes on Joseph Haydn and raise the approach to his symphonies to the musicological state of the art. A path to Haydn. A path with Haydn.
