L’Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg has become one of Europe’s most prestigious and active orchestras, giving over 100 concert performances and, with Opéra du Rhin, numerous operas each season. They scored a major success with their critically acclaimed DVD release of Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites, which received the Diapason d’Or de l’Année, and a rosette in the new Penguin Guide to Compact Discs. Strasbourg has grown increasingly important as a European centre of culture and business, as the quality of their orchestra attests, and they have cultivated a captive musical audience.
