Performances range from Baroque works, classical (also in symphonic cast), string compositions of the Romanesque period and early modernity, as well as avant-garde works. The orchestra plays at all relevant concert halls around the globe on large tours or at individual concerts with soloists such as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Maurice André, Alfred Brendel, James Galway, Viktoria Mullova, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Thomas Quasthoff, Martha Argerich and Sharon Kam. In addition, the orchestra places special emphasis on co-operation with fresh young soloists.
