Amsterdam 's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of Europe's greatest ensembles, its sound forged through a history with relatively few changes of music directors. One of these, Bernard Haitink, now the Conductor Laureate, conducts tonight's concert.

The programme brings together three much-loved orchestral works from across a grand sweep of the repertoire. Mozart's Symphony No 35, 'Haffner', and Beethoven's Symphony No 7 are both deservedly among the best-known and most-performed symphonies ever committed to score. Debussy himself conducted the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra; La Mer, his symphonic sketches on the sea, is a masterpiece of impressionistic orchestral writing.

‘The way in which Haitink fits everything into the overarching musical scheme is masterly and wonderfully satisfying.’ Guardian
