Over a 170-year history, the musicians of this orchestra have maintained a tradition of beauty and excellence in music-making—enjoying close associations with many influential composers—Wagner, Verdi, Bruckner, Brahms, Liszt, Strauss, Mahler—and conductors—Richter, Furtwängler, von Karajan, Bernstein.
