Founded 45 years ago by refugee musicians from Prague, the orchestra will be conducted by Christoph Eschenbach. Under his baton, the Bamberg Symphony has just released a series of recordings of the musicof Robert Schumann, on the Virgin classics label.

Eschenbach has served as guest conductor with the Houston Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony, and other orchestras throughout Europe and North America. He is also a concert pianist, with over 50 recordings.

Schiff, one of the world's great cellists, performs more than 100 concerts annually.
