"One of Europe's most distinguished chamber orchestras, the spirited Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen of Germany, enchants music lovers with its instinct for imaginative, well thought-out programs and interpretations. Under the artistic direction of Grammy Award-winning Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi, the orchestra has received unprecedented public and critical acclaim - particularly for its Beethoven symphony cycle recordings and concerts. The Berliner Tagesspiegel said a Litwin performance sounded as though 'Beethoven himself were sitting at the piano.' Also a composer, he is the George Kennedy Distinguished Professor of Music at UNC."
