Chamber Orchestra of Europe
Founded in 1981 by young musicians from the European Youth Orchestra (EUYO), the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (COE) has developed strong relationships with renowned conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Bernard Haitink, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Sir András Schiff. The COE’s recordings have won many international awards, including two Grammys and three Gramophone Awards. The Orchestra is the first-ever orchestra-in-residence at the Kronberg Academy’s new Casals Forum and also at the Esterhazy Palace in Eisenstadt. The COE is a private orchestra which receives invaluable financial support from particularly The Gatsby Charitable Foundation and a further number of Friends.
