Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra presents book RCO meets Europe

01 February 2019

On 1 February 2019, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra presents RCO meets Europe, a gorgeously designed book on a unique and ambitious project. Between August 2016 and November 2018, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra visited all 28 member states of the European Union in the course of two and a half seasons.

Omslag boek RCO meets Europe

The tour served to highlight the fundamental ideas and ideals that hold Europe together. In each EU member state, one opening work was performed Side by Side with a local or national youth orchestra. This book, written in English, provides a rich image of the extraordinary project.

Besides interviews and many beautiful photos, the book contains essays by professional authors as well as the ten winning entries of the essay competition for young Europeans which was organised by the orchestra as part of RCO meets Europe.

The book RCO meets Europe is available at € 19,95 in our webshop.
