Change of conductor and program

Please note the following change of conductor and program for the concerts of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam on 5 and 6 September:

The symphony concert 19 on 5 September will be conducted by Manfred Honeck, the programme will be unchanged. The symphony concert 20 on 6 September will be led by Bernard Haitink. Instead of the originally planned programme, the orchestra will perform Gustav Mahler’s Ninth Symphony.

The change of cast is necessary because the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam has terminated the cooperation with chief conductor Daniele Gatti with immediate effect.

Tickets for both concerts remain valid. We are very grateful to Manfred Honeck and Bernard Haitink that they can take over on such short notice.
