  • Description

    Robeco SummerNights
    Robeco SummerNights presents two months of wonderful concerts, from classical to jazz and from cabaret to film scores! In the beautiful Mirror Hall there is a summer restaurant where you can enjoy a three-course dinner before the concert.

    Berlioz and Dvořák
    The Roman Carnival from 1844 belongs to the long list of overtures written by Berlioz, who melded two themes from his opera Benvenuto Cellini into a musical overture, achieving huge success with this festive work. Dvořák composed his Cello Concerto in B minor in the winter of 1894 in New York. He created a concerto of symphonic grandeur in three movements, containing an ode to his deceased sister-in-law Josefina Čermáková, for whom he’d had romantic feelings.

    Shostakovich
    The Fifth Symphony by Shostakovich was composed under Stalin’s restrictive policy on the arts. The work really hits its mark – and is still one of Shostakovich’s most performed symphonies. After the premiere in Paris, newspaper Le Soir reported: ‘The Fifth Symphony leaves behind an impression of grandeur and simplicity.’
