The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

One of the very best orchestras in the world on a unique visit in Sweden.

Event has already taken place

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of the very best orchestras in the world. Now it visits Gothenburg for a unique concert.

Time and time again, critics have lauded its unique sound, which clearly stands out among thousands of others. The RCO’s string section has been called ‘velvety’, the sound of the brass ‘golden’, the timbre of the woodwinds ‘distinctly personal’ and the percussion have an international reputation.

Just listen to this playlist and you will be convinced that The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is absolutely marvelous.

In the concert’s first piece, around 35 young musicians from the region of Västra Götaland play “Side by Side” with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. It’s part of the project ‘RCO meets Europe’ where the orchestra visits all 28 member states of the European Union during the course of two and a half seasons. This video is from their visit at Royal Albert Hall:

In repertoire, in spirit and in practice the tour serves to highlight the unifying power of music and the fundamental ideas and ideals that hold Europe together and make Europe what it is.

The conductor Dima Slobodeniouk replaces earlier announced Daniele Gatti.
