One of the most enjoyable aspects of classical music is the vast repertoire of different styles from many eras that most orchestras and ensembles are able to perform. The Essener Philharmoniker are a delight to hear, possessing an eclectic collection of favourites. They are one of the finer groups of performers in Germany.
Magnificent classical music performances and concerts can also be experienced in Dortmund. Great places and ensembles are also in Bochum, Duisburg and Hagen.
Throughout the season, many international conductors and orchestras also give guest appearances while on tour in Ruhr.
