Philharmoniker Hamburg

The Philharmoniker Hamburg performing in the Laeiszhalle, Hamburg

The Hamburg Philharmonic is a German symphony orchestra based in Hamburg. Its current Music Director is GMD Simone Young. It is also the orchestra of the Hamburg State Opera.

It was founded on November 9, 1828 as Philharmonische Gesellschaft (Philharmonic Society).

In 1934 it merged with the Stadttheater-Orchester to become the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg (the name under which it recorded a celebrated Eighth Symphony of Anton Bruckner under Eugen Jochum in 1949). The present name was adopted in 2005.
