One-time chance to see a master pianist at work

Under the direction of its celebrated conductor, Conrad van Alphen, this amazing three-part concert with Mikhail Pletnev comes to life in the Main Hall of de Doelen, Rotterdam. Van Alphen and Pletnev are long-time collaborators and friends, but this will be the first time they play with the conductor's own orchestra which he founded 24 years ago.

When setting up this grand collaboration, Van Alphen spoke on the phone with Pletnev, whose own idea it was to play all four Rachmaninov piano masterpieces and his Paganini Rhapsody. In a funny exchange, Van Alphen modestly asked the master if he and his orchestra could have the chance to play music as well…! So, Rachmaninov's 2nd symphony were added to the programme, which the orchestra will play independently under the direction of Van Alphen.

Sinfonia Rotterdam is an independent orchestra with a mission to bring classical music to everyone. This three-day event can be enjoyed by listeners of all ages and backgrounds. With the help of Droom en Daad, the orchestra was able to bring a legend such as Mikhail Pletnev to the stage in the Netherlands. There, his magical virtuosity can be experienced for a small price where this would otherwise be unattainable.


Get to know the orchestra with a free drink after the concerts

Sinfonia Rotterdam and its conductor Van Alphen strongly believe in cultivating a personal relationship with their audience. This is achieved not only through touching each listener with beautiful music, but getting to know them after the performance as well. 

All three concerts are without intermission after which the conductor, musicians and staff join you for a drink on the house.
