On Wednesday, 24, Thursday, 25 and Friday, 26 June 2020, the Concertgebouworkest will be presenting the Ammodo Conducting Masterclass presided over by Iván Fischer.
The Concertgebouworkest has given its concerts on 25, 26 and 27 March the title ‘In memoriam Mariss Jansons’ in honour of its beloved former chief conductor. Maestro Jansons was to conduct these concerts himself, but passed away on 1 December 2019. The orchestra is very grateful that Gianandrea Noseda has agreed to take over the task.
David Bazen, the Concertgebouworkest’s Director of Business and Media, has been appointed interim Managing Director by the Board of the Concertgebouworkest Foundation. Mr Bazen will assume the post on 1 January 2020, when he will be taking over from Jan Raes, who has left the orchestra on 31 December 2019.
The Concertgebouworkest invites you the enjoy the incredible power of classical music.
Mariss Jansons conducted his farewell to the Concertgebouworkest with Martijn Padding’s Ick Seg Adieu. The applicable title comes from a Dutch folk song, on which Padding based his composition.
