The great maestros

Symphonic music comes to life under the direction of leading conductors such as conductor emeritus Mariss Jansons, Jaap van Zweden, Herbert Blomstedt and Sir John Eliot Gardiner.

E Series highlights

In the E Series, leading maestros bring symphonic music to life with performances of the very highest calibre. In addition to Mariss Jansons, you’ll witness Jaap van Zweden at work in the 2019–20 season. Now in his nineties, the ever-sprightly Herbert Blomstedt is conducting Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4. Bruckner’s Fifth is being led by Christian Thielemann, who is returning to the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest for the first time since 2002. Known for his exciting programmes, Thomas Hengelbrock is conducting a concert featuring eighteenth-century music and juxtaposing works by Beethoven with Lutosławski’s spectacular Cello Concerto, in which principal cellist Gregor Horsch is competing against his very own orchestra.

Sir John Eliot Gardiner is conducting Schumann’s rarely performed Szenen aus Goethes Faust with large chorus, children’s choir and numerous soloists, including soprano Christiane Karg, contralto Ann Hallenberg and baritone Christian Gerhaher.
