Eight (or four) Sunday afternoon concerts
Spend your Sunday afternoon in an enjoyable, meaningful way listening to soloists and conductors of world renown performing the most beautiful works by Bach, Beethoven, Dvořák and Bruckner.
Chief conductor Daniele Gatti is conducting Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony. Jaap van Zweden and the orchestra’s former chief conductors Mariss Jansons and Riccardo Chailly are also making appearances in this series. Andrew Manze is leading the orchestra for the first time, conducting an exciting programme focusing on important patrons and benefactors without whose aid many a masterpiece by Bach, Haydn and Beethoven would never have seen the light of day.
The renowned soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek, our artist in residence during the 2017–18 season, can be heard in moving works by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. Kristian Bezuidenhout will be playing the piano and simultaneously leading the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in music by Mozart and C.P.E. Bach.
