MAHLER FESTIVAL 2020

From 8 - 17 May 2020, The Royal Concertgebouw will be hosting its third monumental Mahler Festival. Following the tradition of the 1920 and 1995 Mahler Festivals, all of Mahler’s symphonies will once again be performed in The Concertgebouw’s legendary Main Hall. For the 2020 festival, these symphonies will be brought to life by esteemed guests: the New York Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Budapest Festival Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra.
