As early as the 18th and 19th centuries, (often privately organized) concerts were referred to as "academies". The Munich association "Musikalische Akademie e. V." was founded in 1811 from among the then court opera orchestra. The musicians wanted to finally establish a professional concert series in Munich. In fact, it was the first symphonic concert series in this city. This season, the tradition of the Academy Concerts will be continued under the direction of Vladimir Jurowksi, but also by renowned international guest conductors.
