The most beautiful Sunday afternoons

For Mariss Jansons, conductor emeritus of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, it’s a dream come true: he is leading the orchestra in Benjamin Britten’s splendid War Requiem.

Two Bruckner symphonies also feature in the RCO’s Matinee Series – the Third and the Sixth. The Sixth symfony is with Bernard Haitink at the helm.

The Concertgebouw Orchestra is also playing well-loved symphonies by Mozart and Brahms, as well as two masterpieces by the young Richard Strauss.

You’ll also find out why Schubert’s Ninth Symphony is called the ‘Great’. Plus you’ll have the chance to hear conductor Dima Slobodeniouk, who is making his first appearance with the RCO, and the experienced master Myung-Whun Chung.

And then, there are the soloists. Hearing Mitsuko Uchida perform a Mozart piano concerto is always a special experience; and the same is true of Beethoven performed by violinist Leonidas Kavakos. The series also features solo performances by musicians from the orchestra’s own ranks: principal flautist Kersten McCall is performing Soie by the Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski, and Perry Hoogendijk is taking on Ralph Vaughan Williams’s Tuba Concerto.
