The great symphonic repertoire

The symphonic tradition lives on in the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra’s most extensive and oldest subscription series. This venerable subscription series offers a nice cross section of everything the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has in store in its 2018–19 season.

B Series highlights

Subscribers to the B Series have come to expect the very best in symphonic music, ranging in the 2018–19 season from Haydn’s ‘Drumroll’ Symphony to Andriessen’s Mysteriën, composed in 2013 to mark the orchestra’s 125th anniversary.

In the B Series, the Concertgebouw Orchestra is performing Bruckner’s Third Symphony, Mahler’s Seventh and three symphonic poems by Richard Strauss: Don Juan, Tod und Verklärung and Ein Heldenleben.

On 13 and 14 December, Bernard Haitink will be conducting Bruckner’s rarely heard Symphony No. 6 in the B Series, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra’s most extensive and enduring series.

There are also plenty of concertos to enjoy, including the Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky violin concertos, as well as piano concertos by Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin. In addition to performances by such familiar guests as pianists Mitsuko Uchida and Pierre-Laurent Aimard and violinists Janine Jansen and Leonidas Kavakos, the up-and-coming pianist Beatrice Rana will be making her first appearance with the orchestra.
