Our 2016-2017 season is brimming with Russian composers and performers. As key figures in Russian music, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Dmitry Shostakovich get the ample attention they so richly deserve in this season centred around Russia and revolution.
This season, besides regulars, the Concertgebouw has put together some quirky new festivals and Domains, in which we turn the spotlights on a composer, choreographer and/or musician for a weekend. You can find the complete festival programme of 2015-2016 here.
Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s musical approach to choreography, unique choreographic writing and fondness for working to music by monuments of the (classical) music world, dovetail nicely with the Concertgebouw’s vision of contemporary dance. All that has made her ensemble Rosas an ideal partner since 2009.
Out of the box
Quirky locations, technological innovations, unusual line-ups and original programmes are sure to give you unforgettable experiences.
To complement its concert and dance programme, the Concertgebouw provides an extensive range of context activities and publications. These give audiences greater insight and thus enhance their enjoyment of festivals, concerts and performances. The Concertgebouw provides not only programme books, but also introductions and/or post-show talks, discussions, interviews, lectures, installations and exhibitions. In addition to this, many festivals and performances are accompanied by films, documentaries, workshops or open rehearsals.
Concertgebouw Brugge gives talented young musicians a chance to perform in the Concertgebouw, rehearsal space, a professional live recording and artistic and productional advice.
