'There is nothing like this, anywhere in the world!', the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung recently wrote enthusiastically. The NTR ZaterdagMatinee’s 2014-2015 season comprises 32 concerts. This 54th season bears the intriguing subtitle ‘Italia mia!’.

From Mendelssohn and Berlioz to Klas Torstensson and Diderik Wagenaar. And, are you familiar with the work of Michelangelo Falvetti, Ildebrando Pizzetti and Niccolò Castiglioni?
