Summary:
Mariss Jansons, Lang Lang, Janine Jansen, Thomas Hampson as well as musicians from top European orchestras are joining forces to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Concertgebouw, one of the world's leading concert halls. The Concertgebouw was officially inaugurated on 11 April 1888. Public interest was so great that Amsterdam experienced its very first traffic jam (of carriages). 125 years later, during the month of April 2013, the RCO and the Concertgebouw are organized an anniversary concert together. Under the baton of its chief conductor Mariss Jansons, the orchestra welcoms three popular guest soloists: Lang Lang performing Prokofiev's virtuoso Piano Concerto No. 3 (third movement), Janine Jansen playing Saint-Saëns's Introduction and rondo capriccioso (one of the violinist's most beloved scores, which rendition was greatly acclaimed in the Concertgebouw hall) and Thomas Hampson singing Lieder by Gustav Mahler. Musicians from the RCO, the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks are joining forces for a performance of the Elégie from Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings. The concert, which opens with a prelude from The Master-Singers of Nuremberg by Wagner, closes with Richard Strauss's orchestral suite for The Knight of the Rose. Like Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss happened to conduct the orchestra several times during his career.
