The mission of the Residentie Orkest is to make modern connections between tradition and innovation. And what better material than these three great classics? An "in memorium" for Dutch compoer Theo Verbey who died in Amsterdam on 13 October, 2019, this concert opens with his instrumentation for chamber orchestra of the Andante of Schubert's Piano Sonata in A. Then, the string section of the Residentie Orchestra will perform Theo's Fractal Variations.
Croatian-Austrian pianist Dejan Lazic will then be the soloist in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2. The concert will conclude with Sibelius's Symphony no. 7.

The Finnish conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali is making his first appearance with the Concertgebouworkest, leading it in Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex, which is preceded by the world premiere of a work by the Dutch composer Theo Verbey.
In the thematic series Man and Myth, the Concertgebouworkest is focusing on mythological figures who have had a major influence on our culture thanks to the great Greek tragedians. It was Sophocles who first gave us the tragic king Oidípous, king of Thebes. When trying to find out who killed his father, he slowly but surely arrives at a horrifying discovery... In Stravinsky’s brilliant opera–oratorio Oedipus rex, a churning sea of emotions lies beneath the ritualistic music.(Source - Concertgebouw website)

On October 13 our beloved colleague Theo Verbey passed away. For many of us this message came as a shock. Theo was a loved and much-played composer. Perhaps because of the care he displayed towards his musicians also played a role in the way he approached his audience.

Students and teachers from Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the Royal Conservatoire pay tribute to their teacher and colleague in a short concert with compositions and arrangements.

"Imagination, poetry, and invention come together at the hazy intersections between sleeping and waking, life and dreams. Fauré explores the sensual delights of Paradise while Helen Grime conjures the harvest moon. Theo Verbey illuminates celestial wonders, and Schumann gives us an exhilarating reflection of humanity in all its complexity and contradiction.[...]

With the new musical theatre production Death in Venice, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra returns to the Royal Theatre Carré for the first time in a long time. This unique co-production with Toneelgroep Amsterdam, soon to be known as Internationaal Theater Amsterdam (ITA), is based on Thomas Mann's classic novella and features newly composed music.


In Death in Venice, Thomas Mann tells the story of von Aschenbach - a celebrated German writer representing Mann's alter ego - who meets an innocent adolescent, Tadzio. The writer's intense, uncontrollable infatuation ultimately leads to his spiritual and physical destruction. In Ramsey Nasr's reworking as a musical theatre piece, the characters are performed by actors, but also by orchestral musicians and a singer. Music plays a leading role in the drama.

Three very distinctive choreographies from different generations. Dutch-born Regina van Berkel and Didy Veldman and American-born Lucinda Childs all guarantee a highly individual, appealing style and approach to the modern ballet idiom. While Veldman took a painting by Pablo Picasso as her inspiration, Van Berkel’s extensive, theatrical choreography (set to music by Theo Verbey) passes before your eyes like a Salvador Dalí film. Lucinda Childs, now aged 77, rounds off the programme with a world premiere set to the music written by Ludovico Einaudi for the French film hit Intouchables.
