Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg - OPL
The Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg (OPL) represents a very dynamic part of the culture of its country. Since its debut in 1933 under the aegis of Radio Luxembourg (RTL), the orchestra has been present all over Europe. The orchestra has been publicly administered since 1996 and has formed one and the same entity with the Philharmonie Luxembourg since 2012.
The acoustics of the Philharmonie and the OPL’s long-standing connections with institutions like the Salle Pleyel in Paris and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw have contributed to making the OPL an orchestra renowned for the elegance of its sonority. Moreover, the precision and musicality of its music director, Emmanuel Krivine, and the orchestra’s close collaboration with first-rate musical personalities have consolidated the orchestra’s reputation.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the OPL share a common spirit of openness towards Europe and the world. The 98 musicians hailing from some 20 different are active throughout the Greater Region with numerous concerts and activities. Tours take the orchestra to many music venues in Europe as well as in Asia and the USA.
