Heidelberger Sinfoniker

It is inspiring music-making of the highest order.
The imaginative phrasing, the freedom of line, articulation, which drive the essence of dramaturgy and rhetoric through every symphony. The orchestra plays with such lyricism, character and humanity

Barbara Hannigan, März 2022

The orchestra performs with loose-limbed, high-spirited virtuosity, tearing into the music with contagious enthusiasm. The approach is highly adventurous but they never rush their fences.

Explore Haydn on the 7th and 8th of October

About the concert  "1784 - a Haydn time travel", excerpts from the review of the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung of October 11, 2023, Leonie Krause

„The orchestra can be seen having fun with every note, they put themselves passionately into the works...As a result, the transitions between the music and the musicians almost melt away for the audience, eyes and ears grasp a coherent overall picture. This emotional performance makes it easy for the audience to lose themselves in the music.
It seemingly catapults its listeners out of the room, carrying them away with Haydn's melodies...The interplay of the entire concert skillfully sends the audience on the journey it promised. It entertains with an infectious lightness. In the end, we can actually smell the year 1784 a little."

And a few impressions from the review for the family concerts "Ein Haydn-Spaß", 12. Oktober 2023, J. Blank

What a Haydn fun...Parts of the symphony No. 80 and 81 were played - in an outstanding way - but with a special twist. Johannes Klumpp not only conducted virtuously, but also took the children on a little journey back in time to the year 1784.... The children in the music school heard a colorful musical story about idyllic mountain lakes, beautiful fairies and gruff gnomes. In a humorous way, Klumpp also gave an insight into music theory: using "Alle meine Entchen" as an example, he explained how a third works. Again and again, little classical music fans could be seen jumping up with excitement...Niklas (6) also thought the performance was great: "I liked it best when we could join in and guess what the instrument was called or dance together." As a highlight, the children were allowed on stage to talk to the musicians themselves and take another close look at the instruments.... "We would come back any time. It's great when children are introduced to classical music in such a relaxed way.”
