The program

Composer Mathilde Wantenaar has quickly established a reputation with her colourful, appealing music. She wrote a new accordion concerto, which is by no means an everyday genre. The solo part is in the excellent hands of the award-winning Vincent van Amsterdam, a former winner of Dutch Classical Talent and an all-rounder on the accordion. The much-loved ballet Petrushka by Igor Stravinsky will also be performed. The concert opens with Ravel’s orchestral suite Le tombeau de Couperin; its movements are dedicated to friends who died in the First World War.

On the eve of World War I, Stravinsky shook up the music world with his ground-breaking ballets. The exuberant Petrushka is a transitional work from the romantic world of The Firebird to the furious scandal music of Le Sacre du Printemps. The Residentie Orkest, which regularly makes an appearance at the Muziekgebouw in the contemporary symphonic repertoire, plays Petrushka in Stravinsky’s 1947 revised version.
