Our ensembles

Camerata RCO

Camerata RCO is a unique ensemble. We are all members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. We enjoy making music together in the orchestra and expand that joy now in a smaller ensemble.

The repertoire is different and playing chamber music is more personal and intimate. It is refreshing to get to know the colleagues of the orchestra closer while working together for Camerata RCO. We are free to chose the pieces we play, with which players and also where. With Camerata RCO we like to be in direct contact with the audience. That is inspiring and gives us a lot of energy.

Camerata RCO is playing many concerts in the Netherlands and abroad. the ensemble has a residency in a series in Spaarndam, Dordrecht and also in the Festival Amfiteatrof in Levanto. We have recently played in Tokyo, Seoul, Vienna, Roma, Torino a.o.

Camerata RCO has made several radio and tv broadcasts and has recorded cd’s (Corelli, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Ravel) under the label Gutman Records.

Founded in 1987, the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra is made up of members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Prior to 1987, the group performed in and outside the Netherlands as the Amsterdam Chamber Orchestra.

Each year, the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra is invited to perform at all the leading concert venues in the Netherlands, such as the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht and De Doelen in Rotterdam. It also makes regular guest appearances in such series as the Zondagochtend Concert (Sunday Morning Concert), AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert (Friday Concert) and Music for the Millions.

In recent seasons, the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra has collaborated with such national and international soloists as Liza Ferschtman, Nicolas Altstaedt, Lavinia Meijer, Dominic Seldis, Vesko Eschkenazy, Amihai Grosz, Emily Beynon, Noa Wildschut and Tjeerd Top, with upcoming concerts to feature Stefan Vladar, Harriet Krijgh and Ronald Brautigam.

The Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra also gives regular performances outside the Netherlands. Last season, it garnered wide critical acclaim for its tour of Germany with violinist Liza Ferschtman. In previous years, the ensemble has toured Italy, Finland, Japan, Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria and Turkey.

For over thirty-five years, its annual performances of J.S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion in collaboration with Bachkoor Holland have proved among the most popular in the Netherlands. Its performances of the work at St Peter’s Church in Leiden on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are seen as pillars of the Dutch St Matthew Passion tradition and are regularly attended by leading politicians and celebrities.

The Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra has released a number of Super Audio CDs on PentaTone featuring works by Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Haydn and Tchaikovsky.
