The Christmas Matinee is being led by the young Finnish conductor Klaus Mäkelä, who gave a particularly strong first performance with the Concertgebouworkest back in September. Mäkelä is conducting two undisputed highlights of the history of orchestral music, taking us on a journey over land and sea with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, the ‘Pastoral’, and Debussy’s La mer.
The recording of this performance was made possible by the Swiss Friends of the Concertgebouworkest. We thank the Swiss Friends for their support!
