Essentials

The Essentials series introduces you to the masterpieces you will be happy to know, performed by the world-famous Concertgebouw Orchestra and complete with a lively introduction by the incomparable Thomas Vanderveken. At Essentials, we welcome a new generation of music lovers, and the concerts typically have a pleasant, informal atmosphere.

Mahler’s Symphony No. 1

A Mahler symphony performed by the Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by its artistic partner Klaus Mäkelä is a downright sensation! When Gustav Mahler came to Amsterdam to conduct the Dutch premiere of his First Symphony in 1903, a close collaboration started – so began the Concertgebouw Orchestra’s much-vaunted Mahler tradition. Klaus Mäkelä steps into that tradition with respect and self-confidence. He previously gave stunning interpretations of the Sixth and the Third, now it is time for the First, which he calls Mahler's 'pastoral’ symphony: ‘I’ve always been attracted to its imaginative beauty, and its freshness. The expression is extremely clear, and it contains all the elements of his later work.’

Essentials starts at 21:00, with an imaginative introduction to the programme (in Dutch).
