Chamber orchestra of the University of Regensburg (KUR)

“The University of Regensburg began its first lectures in the autumn of 1967. Already in the summer of 1968 we find the first concert of the University Orchestra which has since been making regular public appearances. The orchestra now has over 100 members and in 2004 it separated into a Symphony Orchestra and a Chamber Orchestra. The first consists almost entirely of students but the second combines advanced students with professional musicians in order to achieve as high a standard as possible. This is the first CD recording of the Chamber Orchestra. I hope that it will appeal to the hearts of music lovers and that they will want to come to concerts to hear the orchestra live.”
Prof. Dr. Alf Zimmer, Rector of the University of Regensburg
