Concertgebouw Orchestra musicians in the Recital Hall

The chamber music concerts in the Close-up Series let you marvel up close at the artistry of musicians of the Concertgebouw Orchestra.

For many years now, musicians of the Concertgebouw Orchestra have been performing their own programmes in the Recital Hall of the Concertgebouw as part of the chamber music Close­up Series. These intimate concerts are organised by the Friends of the Concertgebouw and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

There are eight Close­-up concerts in the 2022–23 season. If you wish, you can subscribe to a series of four con­certs. There are exciting portrait concerts featuring principal trumpet player Miroslav Petkov and principalclarinettist Calogero Palermo, musicians of the or­chestra will be collaborating with artist in residence Martin Fröst and with violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, and there’s a programme of short works by all twelve composers whose names are displayed on the cartouch­es (or name plaques) on the walls of the Recital Hall.

We will be concluding the season in festive style with a concert celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Academy of the Concertgebouw Orchestra.
