Gewandhaus Orchestra

Hitting All the Right Notes

The Gewandhausorchester has a history stretching back in excess of 250 years, and has performed with some of the greatest musicians of any era, including Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Wagner. Its distinguished reputation and astounding spectrum of expressive capability have made the Orchestra one of the finest on the planet.

Led by Riccardo Chailly, the Orchestra’s 19th Gewandhauskapellmeister, since 2005, the Orchestra has well and truly climbed to the top of the orchestral tree, and with a touring schedule that encompasses performances in Europe, Asia, and the US, the importance of safely transporting the instruments and equipment cannot be underestimated. Whether it be via temperature controlled transport or a tight turnaround, DHL is always on hand to make sure the Orchestra’s musicians hit every high note, even while thousands of miles from home.
