First visit of the exceptional Concertgebouworkest in Harpa

The Concertgebouworkest was founded in 1888 and is one of the very best orchestras in the world. It has cultivated a very distinct, individual sound, one which is due in large part to the unique acoustics of its home and main performance hall, The Concertgebouw concert hall in Amsterdam. The orchestra has always collaborated with the greatest conductors and soloists. Such composers as Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler and Igor Stravinsky all conducted the Concertgebouworkest on more than one occasion. In addition to some eighty concerts performed at The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the orchestra gives forty concerts at other major concert halls throughout the world. It is a great pleasure to welcome the orchestra for the first time in Iceland, for an exceptional concert in Harpa, on the occation of the concert hall´s 10 year anniversary celebration.

Klaus Mäkelä is only 25 years old but he is already one of the most sought-after young conductors around. He has been chief conductor of the Oslo Philharmonic since 2020, and he will be taking on an additional role as music director of the Orchestre de Paris in 2022. The Helsinki-born conductor also takes charge of other top orchestras on the side, including Amsterdam’s Concertgebouworkest. The outstanding young conductor now comes to Harpa with two highlights of the symphonic repertoire. With its rebelliously contrasting movements, Dmitri Shostakovich’s epic Sixth Symphony unsettled Soviet critics in 1939. In contrast, Tchaikovsky’s deeply melancholic Sixth, with the telling epithet »Pathétique«, was – ten days before his death – his farewell to the world.
