The Classics

the best-loved masterpieces

D Series

D Series

In seven concerts, the Concertgebouw Orchestra introduces you to the best-loved masterpieces of classical music.

Certain high points of the classical repertoire simply can’t be ignored – iconic masterpieces by the greatest composers at the top of their game. In six concerts, the D Series offers you the perfect introduction to undisputed classics like Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, Mahler’s Ninth and Richard Strauss’s dizzying mountain trek in music, Eine Alpensinfonie.

The annual performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion has been a Dutch tradition for more than a century – and for good reason. Bartók’s early ballet The Wooden Prince and Stravinsky’s turbulent Symphony in Three Movements are masterpieces from the first half of the twentieth century.
