About the Concertgebouworkest and The Concertgebouw
The Royal Concertgebouworkest
The Concertgebouworkest is one of the very best symphony orchestras in the world (even elected the best by international critics of Gramophone). But what makes the orchestra so special? Time and again, critics have lauded its unique sound, which clearly stands out among thousands of others. The Concertgebouworkest string section has been called ‘velvety’, the sound of the brass ‘golden’, the timbre of the woodwinds ‘distinctly personal’ and the percussion are internationally revered.
The Royal Concertgebouw
It was Bernard Haitink who once praised The Concertgebouw as the best instrument of the orchestra that it houses. Since the beginning, the main hall of the Concertgebouw has amazed audiences with its exceptional acoustics. That must have been what prominent Amsterdam residents had in mind when they decided in 1881 to gift the capital city with a majestic concert hall. Seven years later, the swampy fields just outside the city limits boasted a wonder of neoclassic architecture, The Concertgebouw. Nowadays, just like the celebrated Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, this fantastic concert hall enjoys worldwide renown.
