A sparkling and melancholic musical postcard 

A thunder strike in the orchestra, flashes of lightning shooting down into the piano… And then that melody, so much melancholy, so much yearning in one single oboe! Schumann gave his Piano Concerto a revolutionary beginning like no one had ever heard. 

Electrified, the audience shifts more and more to the edge of their seats, to be enraptured by Schumann’s dreams of love. For that, we are delighted to welcome Ronald Brautigam onto the stage. ‘He is able to make his piano sing,’ in the words of the Volkskrant about this Dutch grandmaster. As melancholy as Schumann’s Piano Concerto is, Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony is remarkably cheerful. Like Mozart’s Thirteenth Symphony, which coincidentally he wrote at age 10!, Mendelssohn’s symphony is a travel diary of Italy. Richard Egarr is the ideal guest conductor to bring these Italian postcards to life, with his grand flair and exuberant joy at making music.

To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
