Ludwigsburg Festival Orchestra
Shortly after its founding in 1972, the Orchestra of the Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele became one of the outstanding orchestras on the international festival scene. The musicians earned this reputation above all with the longstanding festival director and conductor Wolfgang Gönnenwein. Even today, it consists of members of leading ensembles of the region as well as professors and their master students. Under the direction of Michael Hofstetter from 2005 to 2012, the focus was increasingly on historically informed performance practice. From 2015 to 2019, the Finn Pietari Inkinen presided as principal conductor. Since the beginning of Jochen Sandig as artistic director, the seasons have been characterised by multiple collaborations with conductors such as Oksana Lyniv, Barbara Hannigan, and Vitali Alekseenok. After Ryan McAdams made his conducting debut at the »Monrepos Open Air«, will return to the festival orchestra for the opening of the 2024 season. This year's finale will be presented by the long-awaited Alonda de la Parra.
