The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra with his 17 musicians was founded in 1945 by Karl Münchinger. In 2013, Matthias Foremny took over the Chief Conductorship of the orchestra.
Innumerable concert performances around the globe and participation in the top international music festivals have been the hallmark of the high quality and the outstanding reputation of the ensemble. In recent years the orchestra played with famous soloists like Fazil Say, Julia Fischer and Martin Fröst.
For its expectional achievements, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra was awarded the 2008 European Chamber Music Prize by the European Cultural Foundation.
