Close-up: Michael Gieler
Viola player Michael Gieler plays chamber music from three centuries of Mozart, Dvořák and Schönberg with colleagues from the Concertgebouw Orchestra. In Mozarts Horn Quintet, the horn blends wonderfully beautifully with the string quartet with two violas. Come listen in the Recital Hall of the Royal Concertgebouw.
Michael Gieler is solo alto in the Concertgebouw Orchestra, and also an active initiator and organizer of concert series in Amsterdam and beyond, with an eye for special concert programs. In this portrait concert he and colleagues from the orchestra play three important chamber music works from three different centuries.

In Mozart's Horn Quintet, the horn blends wonderfully beautifully with the string quartet with two violas. In his Second String Quintet, Dvořák allows five string players to breathe and sing together like no other. Schönberg's Second String Quartet heralds a new era – literally: violinist Marleen Asberg, also soprano, sings about the 'air of other planets' in the final movement.
In the chamber music series Close-up, musicians from the Concertgebouw Orchestra play self-composed programs in the Recital Hall. These are all special one-off concerts that cannot be heard anywhere else. The way to experience the individual qualities of the orchestra musicians! The intimate concerts are organized by the Friends of the Concertgebouw and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
