Six (or three) chamber music performances in the Recital Hall
How would you like to experience the musicians of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra close up? You can! For years, they have been giving chamber music concerts in the Recital Hall as part of the Close-up Series, in which members of the orchestra take to the Friends’ Stage.
Tickets for this series are available to Concert Friends at a discount.
Principal clarinettist Olivier Patey and principal of the orchestra’s second violin section Henk Rubingh have programmed two personal and adventurous portrait concerts. There’s also a concert dedicated to the theme of War and Peace. In two exciting concert programmes, members of the orchestra honor Rossini’s 150th death anniversary and celebrate the American composer Lou Harrison’s 100th birthday.
Artist in residence Eva-Maria Westbroek is also teaming up with members of the orchestra in a colourful concert featuring Berg’s Sieben frühe Lieder on 13 May.
