Masterpieces every music lover should know: three concerts on Friday or Saturday evenings
Essentials is a series of three concerts given on Saturday evenings which introduce listeners to an undisputed masterpiece performed by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The energetic Belgian presenter Thomas Vanderveken will be shining his own unique light on the music. Plus there’s plenty of opportunity to mix and mingle over drinks at the Entrée Café after the concert.
In the 2019–20 season, Paavo Järvi will be conducting Brahms’s monumental Symphony No. 4, Thomas Hengelbrock will be leading the orchestra in Beethoven’s Fifth, and the indefatigable Herbert Blomstedt, now in his nineties, will be conducting Bruckner’s ‘Romantic’ Fourth Symphony.
