The young American pianist Conrad Tao opens the very first concert in the new Essentials Series on Saturday, 11 October.
A century later. One of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra’s house composers, Michel van der Aa has written his very first violin concerto. And not just for any soloist – Janine Jansen.
He will conduct a diverse range of concert programs, including Shostakovich's Piano Concerto no. 1 with Yuja Wang in September and Mahler's Symphony no. 4 during the Christmas Matinee.
