“We are delighted to welcome back the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for their European tour in the summer of 2017, having executed a successful creative PR campaign for the release of ‘Concertos for Orchestra’. The CSO is an incredibly versatile and forward-thinking ensemble, and we look forward to developing and sharing their stories with European audiences.” – Olivia Brown, Head of Creative Strategy & Marketing

The orchestra will visit several cities in countries around Europe this summer, with dates at the Edinburgh International Festival and San Sebastian already confirmed and more to be announced shortly. In March 2017 it was announced that Louis Langrée was to remain Music Director of the CSO for the 2019-2020 season.

Founded in 1895, the CSO is the sixth oldest orchestra in the United States and the first to be broadcast to a national radio audience in 1921. With a rich history of music making directly linked to the community in the state of Ohio, the CSO ordinarily reside in the Venetian gothic ‘Music Hall’ building, which recently underwent extensive renovation and restoration. The 2017 tour will bring American musical excellence to audiences across Europe, delighting fans new and old with their ‘richness, precision and intensity’ of performance.

CSO previously released live recorded album ‘Concertos for Orchestra’ in November 2016 on the orchestra’s own label ‘Fanfare’, featuring world premieres of seven pieces by contemporary composers. Works from this album will feature among a varied concert programme performed on the European tour.
