Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of the world’s truly great ensembles, famed for the nobility and sophistication of its orchestral sound, its velvety strings, golden brass and gleaming woodwind.
The orchestra performs one of the greatest symphonic achievements in the repertoire. Gustav Mahler never lived to hear his sombre yet visionary Ninth Symphony performed, and it is often considered his farewell to the world, with music of great tenderness as well as volcanic climaxes.
Conductor Daniele Gatti is a renowned Mahlerian and widely respected for his searching, dramatic performances that balance incisive detail with emotional resonance.
‘an experience that will stay with me for years to come.’
