The Storioni Festival is our chamber music celebration with international allure. Renowned ensembles and soloists make appearances alongside the newest generation of promising musicians. Let yourself be carried away through numerous highlights and surprises from the rich history of chamber music. The Storioni Festival celebrates its tenth edition in 2017 and this promises to be a special and festive concert.

One of the highlights of the evening is undoubtedly the top Australian violinist Ray Chen. This youngest winner ever of the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition is artist in residence of Muziekgebouw Eindhoven this season. He gave a breathtaking rendition of Max Bruch’s violin concerto last season on our large stage. Chen travels all over the world with his beautiful Stradivarius dating from 1715, but Muziekgebouw Eindhoven holds a special place in his heart: ‘A fantastic hall! The audience sits close to the stage and the acoustics help me to give the very best I have to offer’, said Chen in an interview for our annual report. He is a typical example of such a young musician that combines the best of two worlds: his phenomenal violin playing is deeply rooted in rich tradition, but he is also as adventurous and communicative as a pop star.

Inspired by 100 years Dutch Design, this jubilee edition of the Storioni Festival has the theme Designing new traditions. How do the newest musical trends and developments link in with the golden traditions of the past? This question forms a recurring theme through the whole festival programme.
