Netherlands Chamber Orchestra at Concertgebouw

The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, directed by Gordan Nikolić, is one of the foremost performing ensembles in the Netherlands, regularly giving concerts at prime venues in Europe. Catch them on December 1 and 3 at Concertgebouw, playing an impressive programme by Beethoven and Britten.

An impressive Britten and Beethoven programme

Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14 is one of his best-known quartets. The ensemble brings the version for chamber orchestra with full-sounding brilliance.

Britten's Simple Symphony was written in his youth: four little pieces composed between the age of 10 and 13 are expertly turned into a full-bodied work for chamber orchestra. In Britten's Phaedra, the Finnish mezzo-soprano Virpi Räisänen joins the orchestra in a spectacular performance, with costumes and staging directed by Monique Wagemakers.

Artistic director and leader Gordan Nikolić

The concert ends with Beethoven String Quartet no. 14 arranged for string orchestra. Beethoven's late string quartets are one of the highlights in the history of chamber music, and this quartet is the most famous of its kind.

Netherlands Chamber Orchestra

The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra has a track record of being an exceptional ensemble with a vast treasury of massive accolades, prolific concerts and eminent players. They are famous for the inter-player dynamics, an ensemble which rarely performs with a conductor. Instead, Gordan Nikolić leads the orchestra from the first violin chair.
