His incredible virtuosity and musicality are the 2022-23 season with the Concertgebouw Orchestra expressed in both the classical repertoire and newly commissioned works and in both the traditional concert setting and multimedia productions.

His first guest appearance with the Concertgebouw Orchestra was in 2014. In the 2022–23 season, Martin Fröst will be performing on Opening Night. He will also be appearing with the orchestra at the Philharmonie in Essen. In addition, Fröst is teaming up as soloist with violinist Janine Jansen in the Dutch premiere of Sally Beamish’s commissioned work Distans, and is performing a newly commissioned clarinet concerto by Anna Clyne. Fröst will further feature on a chamber music programme in the Close­up Series in collaboration with orchestral musicians, and in a special outreach programme at the Bijlmerpark Theatre.
