The FBO continuously collaborates with important artists such as Christian Gerhaher, Isabelle Faust, René Jacobs, Pablo Heras-Casado, Andreas Staier and Kristian Bezuidenhout and has a close alliance with the label harmonia mundi. The artistic success of this musical partnership is expressed in numerous CD productions and the receipt of prominent awards, such as the Gramophone Award, the ECHO Klassik Deutscher Musikpreis, the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, the Edison Classical Music Award or the Classical Brit Award. Under the artistic directorship of its two concert-masters Gottfried von der Goltz and Petra Müllejans, and under the baton of selected conductors, the FBO presents itself with about one hundred performances per year in a variety of formations from chamber to opera orchestra: a self-administrated ensemble with its own subscription concerts at Freiburg's Concert Hall, Stuttgart's Liederhalle, and Berlin's Philharmonie and with tours all over the world.
