Radio stations and record companies treat pop and classical music as strictly separate market segments, a fact unheeded by countless musicians and music lovers for decades. In all sorts of ways, the musical boundaries between pop and art – between ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture – are overstepped, blurred and even obliterated. As part of the AAA Festival based on the theme ‘pop art’, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is exploring this exciting fringe area. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Holland Festival and pop artist Son Lux, whose name will be announced at a later date, are joining forces to take part in an adventurous encounter.

Those attending this concert will receive the programme booklet free of charge at the door. Additional background information can be found in Preludium, the programme magazine of the Concertgebouw and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
