MCO Sound Sessions

2 December 2021

The MCO is known for its agile, alert and responsive playing style, and its international roster of musicians. But after so much time away from one another during the first lockdowns, the musicians wanted to re-group to rediscover and develop the MCO's signature sound. These sessions were invaluable in helping keep alive the flame that Claudio Abbado ignited in the orchestra's early days.


The MCO Sound Sessions were generously supported by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media through "Neustart Kultur". Filmed by WPSteinheisser at Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
