We are pleased to report that the OCM Symphony Orchestra evolves to the Franz Schubert Filharmonia.
In its path of growth and excellence, the OCM has found a new formula to explain itself to the world from now on, exemplifying it through a new name that represents its love for music and the relevance of a universal composer. The Franz Schubert Filharmonia is born.
Franz Schubert is a composer who exemplifies an essential moment in the history of music and a key figure in the creation of musical Romanticism, a style that revolutionized artistic history and opened the doors to new languages.
In the words of Tomàs Grau, chief conductor and artistic director of the orchestra since its foundation: We feel heirs to the artistic spirit of Franz Schubert, who represents a fascinating period in the history of music. We are a symphony orchestra, but what also represents us is our love for music. This is how we pick up our own heritage to project it into the future.
Collecting this spirit, the Franz Schubert Filharmonia wants to become an orchestra at the service of the public, a vehicle, a ‘bridge’ to present in its concerts the best tradition of the great symphonic repertoire; repertoire that becomes the stylistic axis of the formation, expanding it towards new forms and new musical periods. With this spirit we will especially follow the great musical works from the s. XVII to the s. XX.
The Franz Schubert Filharmonia has maintained the values of human and artistic quality from day one, with a strong commitment to maintaining a project of excellence that brings music around the world closer to becoming a first-class European orchestra.
