Reinhold Würth was keen to seize the opportunity to establish an orchestra. He is a big fan of classical music himself and wanted to give something back to his home region. The Würth Philharmonic Orchestra makes music an integral part of the company’s cultural activities. The predominantly classical repertoire also includes select pieces of chamber music and contemporary pieces by composers ranging from Astor Piazzolla to Philip Glass, and a number of specially commissioned new compositions. The orchestra will perform as Carmen Würth Forum’s “orchestra in residence” and will enrich the cultural offerings not only at Würth but also throughout the entire cultural region of Hohenlohe. The response to the orchestra has been extremely positive. All of the concerts held in its first season were completely sold out. Before the season started, the orchestra had traveled to Amsterdam and Bucharest to give guest performances.
