The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra (Junge Philharmonie Köln) is at its core a professional Chamber Orchestra that is expanded to a Symphony Orchestra several times a year. The Orchestra is an independent organization and does not receive state subsidies. Despite this fact or perhaps even because of it, the Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra has been enchanting audiences for more than thirty years.
Anyway, the auditorium was packed and everybody was impressed and delighted. The only negative note was the lack of air-con during the first half of the concert. The musicians interpreted the works of Bach, Mozart and Vivaldi.
Summing up, the 19-euro entrance fee would have been cheap at twice the price – fantastic evening. Enhorabuena.
