Jean-Guihen Queyras takes on Haydn’s best-known cello concertos

Did you buy a ticket for this concert?  The corona virus hits the arts industry hard and for many arts organisations, this economic damage comes on top of the recent cuts in Flemish cultural subsidies. This is why we call on our audience not to ask for a refund of cancelled tickets, in solidarity with the artists. The financial resources thus retained will be fully invested by the Concertgebouw in the artists most affected by job losses. You can also get your ticket value back in the form of a voucher. You will receive this voucher via e-mail in the upcoming weeks. The voucher can be used for a performance of your choice via concertgebouw.be and is valid for one year. You can thus easily use this voucher for the purchase of tickets for this season or the following.
Confirm your choice by May 20 2020 in the digital form via this link.

The Orchestre National de Lille glitter for us thrice in C major. Firstly, with an overture by Beethoven, who like a modern Prometheus, stole the musical fire of the gods. Secondly, with Haydn's Cello Concerto, a prime example of formal clarity, ideally suited to the nimble fingers of Jean-Guihen Queyras. These two gems are set alongside the First Symphony of the still very young (17!) Georges Bizet. Bizet’s youthfulness rings out in this fresh, elegant, light-hearted work: a preview of his future genius.
