This concert will start at 8.30 p.m. and will be broadcast live by AVROTROS on NPO 2 Extra, as well as on NPO 2 around 10.30 p.m. (following Nieuwsuur), and live on NPO Radio 4.

It appears like we can move beyond the corona restrictions. The Royal Concertgebouworkest is celebrating this with a grand gift to the city, the country and the world. On Friday 10 September, the Concertgebouworkest will open the 2021/2022 season with a festive concert in the heart of Amsterdam. At 8.30 p.m. that evening, music will sound through the streets from Dam Square in Amsterdam. In this way, the musicians and the public bring the city back to life.

dWe are looking forward to ringing in the new season with you in this spectacular way! Daniel Harding is not only a conductor but also a pilot for Air France. Tonight he leads us on a musical journey through Europe, ending in Paris.
