The Philharmonic Orchestra of Europe (POE) consists of some of the finest European musicians from the younger generation.
The orchestra comprises 80 members coming from all over Europe. The musicians pursue careers as soloists, are members of notable chamber ensembles, or hold principal positions in leading orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House London. With members of renowned stringquartets as section leaders and its further high-ranking musicians the Philharmonic Orchestra of Europe enjoys the highest artistic standards.
Each season they enjoy playing with the POE for a few tours and projects to rehearse and experience afresh a symphonic repertoire, ranging from chamberorchestra repertoire to large-scale orchestral concerts with the symphonies by Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Bruckner and Mahler.
CD recordings and symphony concerts, as well as the performance of ensemble works for string- and wind-instruments offer an impressive repertoire, ranging from classical to contemporary. In addition to the Philharmonic Orchestra of Europe`s major orchestral programs, chamber music remains a central focus of the individual orchestra members, since it is seen as the root to achieving a constantly renewable tonal transparency and musical intensity, with which the orchestra is identified.
