CLASSICAL MUSIC EXPERIENCE

Here’s your chance to check off your classical bucketlist. Only €10, – per concert if you’re under 30 (how-to get a ticket for €10,-). Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit a real classical concert? What it would feel like to lose yourself in the iconic melodies of world-famous composers? Consider yourself lucky because we’ve curated a special series of must hears, just for you. A classical music bucketlist for this year, and this year only. First up: ‘Blockbuster’ Brahms.

JOHANNES BRAHMS

Brahms was born in 1833 in the ghettos of Hamburg, Germany. His parents quickly realized their son was a gifted musician, when he started playing the piano at the age of 7. Therefore, little Johannes had to play for a living to support his poor family. His oeuvre is very rich, but being a perfectionist, he destroyed a lot of it. Brahms was a big fan of Beethoven, Mozart and Bach – who should also be on your bucketlist – and if you are a good listener, you will hear this in his compositions. It took Brahms about 20 years to complete his first symphony, which later got the nickname ‘Beethoven’s 10th’. Consider Brahms as a classical power player.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

If this is your first classical concert experience you’re in for a real treat. Soloist Simone Lamsma is a world-class violinist who recently performed at the New York Philharmonic. Her performance alone is worth attending. After the break you’ll hear a brand new piece by Germans composer Glanert, especially written as an appetizer for the bucketlist-piece: Brahms third Symphony. This piece is used in many many movies, you’ll recognize it.

Q & A

What to wear to a classical music concert?
A classic night out calls for a classic outfit! Wear whatever you like but it’s a perfect opportunity to dress up. Shine those shoes, iron that shirt, put that hair up. Time to get fancy!
Talking during a concert?
Try to keep your mouth shut during the music, if you have to talk, stick to compliments. You’ll appreciate it too.
Can I use my cell phone?

Slippery slopes. Use your phone with moderation. Take a selfie, share a post but keep it minimal. Enjoy the show! Except for the Wolfgang App, we love that! But seriously. At least turn the sound of www.wolfgangapp.nl (Dutch only).
