From Darkness to Light with Isabelle van Keulen

Hope in dark times. The Residentie Orkest, conducted by Michal Nesterowicz, will perform in the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam on Thursday, 10 October and in The Hague’s Zuiderstrandtheater on Saturday, 12 October. The beautiful, melancholic programme features Britten’s Lachrymae, Vaughan Williams’s Symphony No. 5 and the Dutch premiere of Verbey’s After the Great War. Internationally renowned Dutch violinist Isabelle van Keulen will appear as soloist. The concert in The Hague is a collaboration with Festival Dag in de Branding.

 

World premiere of ‘Footnotes to the human comedy’

On Saturday, 19 October, the Residentie Orkest, conducted by Nicholas Collon, will perform the NTR Saturday Matinee in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. This very special programme features Beethoven’s Mass in C major with the Netherlands Radio Choir, Holloway’s Trumpet Concerto with Swedish brass virtuoso Håkan Hardenberger and the world premiere of Bram Kortekaas’s Footnotes to the human comedy. This great work by a young Dutch composer is based on the pithy Footnotes to the human comedy written by Amsterdam-born writer Arnon Grunberg for the newspaper De Volkskrant.

 

Collon meets Brautigam

The Residentie Orkest, conducted by Nicholas Collon, will perform Bruckner’s monumental Symphony No. 4 and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 on Friday, 8 and Sunday, 10 November in The Hague’s Zuiderstrandtheater and on Saturday, 9 November in the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam. Appearing as soloist will be Ronald Brautigam, an internationally sought-after pianist who has regularly shared the stage with the Residentie Orkest in the past. This will be his first time working with Chief Conductor Nicholas Collon, performing Mozart’s most dramatic piano concerto. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!

 

‘Master of the Hammond’ Sven Figee

The Residentie Orkest, conducted by Joost Geevers, will give a sensational Symphonic Junction show with Sven Figee on Saturday, 16 November in the Paard in The Hague. The Lucky Luke of the Hammond, Figee plays faster than his own shadow and always hits the mark. From Bach to blues and from Vivaldi to Metallica, his performance is a sight to behold and a joy to hear. Often steaming, rumbling, squealing, crackling and intoxicating but invariably poetic and incredibly intimate.

 

Schubert 9 and Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Van Baerle Trio

On Friday, 22 November, the Residentie Orkest, conducted by Jan Willem de Vriend, will complete its Schubert cycle in the Zuiderstrandtheater with Symphony No. 9, the magnificent swan song of the Austrian genius. De Vriend will also meet the prize-winning Van Baerle Trio – violinist Maria Milstein, cellist Gideon den Herder and pianist Hannes Minnaar – in Beethoven’s virtuosic Triple Concerto. There will be a second chance to enjoy Schubert 9, again in the Zuiderstrandtheater, on Sunday, 24 November during Lazy Sunday.
