Ondine celebrates Christoph Eschenbach's 80th Anniversary of birth with a new album release (20.02.2020)

Ondine is happy to congratulate Maestro Christoph Eschenbach on his upcoming 80th anniversary on February 20th. To mark this special event Ondine is releasing the first volume in a series of Paul Hindemith’s Kammermusik on March 6th, 2020 together with exciting young musicians from Kronberg Academy Soloists and the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra. Second volume in the series will be released on September 4th, 2020.


This album series continues Eschenbach’s multi-volume and award-winning discography on Ondine which started over 15 years ago and has resulted already in 23 albums to date filled with exciting repertoire alongside with some of the cornerstone works from the symphonic tradition. Eschenbach’s recordings of the music of Paul Hindemith are particularly noteworthy, including the world première recording of Hindemith’s Klaviermusik mit Orchester, and a Grammy-winning album of the composer’s Violinkonzert.


Christoph Eschenbach is a phenomenon amongst the top league of international conductors. Universally acclaimed as both a conductor and pianist, he belongs firmly to the German intellectual line of tradition, yet he combines this with a rare emotional intensity, producing performances revered by concert-goers worldwide. Renowned for the breadth of his repertoire and the depth of his interpretations, he has held directorships with many leading orchestras and gained the highest musical honours. He is also well-known as a tireless supporter of young talent – this is his greatest passion, and he values his contribution to mentoring up-and-coming talent over and above his own distinguished career. As Artistic Advisor and lecturer at the famous Kronberg Academy, he accompanies young violinists, cellists and violists on their way to become world class soloists. Since September 2019 he is Musical Director of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin.
