The subject of radio orchestras is a global phenomenon that had its origins in Germany and is associated with exciting stories, great conductors, outstanding soloists and, above all, contemporary composers. The 56-minute documentary "The Radio Orchestra" (WT) is the first comprehensive look at how they developed - a cultural history from the technological age closely linked to the history of the 20th century. At the same time, it explores their vision for the future. A film about tradition and innovation, identity, new music and the radio itself.

Filming has started with the MDR Symphony Orchestra and the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra, which will be followed by the Orchestre national de France as well as the RSO Berlin and many more.

A film by Magdalena Zieba-Schwind, written by Maria Stodtmeier and Julia Spinola.

A production of Accentus Music in co-production with MDR/Arte and ORF, supported by Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung.
