called the "Grand Concert" founded by 16 merchants in 1743. Following its move into the meeting house of the cloth merchants (the "Gewandhaus") in 1781, the ensemble was named the "Gewandhaus Orchestra." In 1884, the orchestra moved into a new concert hall
that had been built through the sale of endowment shares,
which was destroyed during the air raids of 1944. In 1981, a new Gewandhaus was opened on Augustusplatz. Few other orchestras have contributed as much to the development of the symphonic musical tradition as the Gewandhaus Orchestra. Example, it performed all of Beethoven's symphonies
during the composer's lifetime. The orchestra also presented the world's first complete Bruckner cycle as well as the first Shostakovich cycle during the 1970s. Felix Mendelssohn, Arthur Nikisch, Wilhelm Furtwangler, and Bruno Walter number among the most distinguished Gewandhaus Music Directors. Herbert Blomstedt, who succeeded Kurt Masur in 1998, was the orchestra's 18th Music Director. Since September 2005, Riccardo Chailly has held
the post of 19th Gewandhaus Music Director.Conductor Riccardo Chailly

the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and has appeared at the most important opera houses throughout the world.
