Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra



The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (RCO), voted the “world’s greatest orchestra” by Gramophone has been lauded for its unique sound.

Askonas Holt’s relationship with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra goes back many years. In August 2016 the RCO performed at The National Concert Hall, Dublin – launching their 2016/2017 series – and worked alongside young Irish musicians in their “side-by-side” European initiative.

In April 2015, we brought the RCO to Seoul to perform a week-long residency of all the Beethoven symphonies at the Seoul Arts Center under Iván Fischer. The final performance, culminated in a collaboration with the Seoul Motet Choir and the National Chorus of Korea for Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No. 9.

January 2017 marked the RCO’s debut performance at The Esplanade, Singapore, alongside concerts in Shanghai and Beijing, returning to Asia in November of the same year for further concert in Seoul.

In November 2022, after six years, the RCO came to London’s Barbican Centre for a pair of concerts with conductor Daniel Harding.

In November 2023, we brought RCO to Seoul to perform concerts at Lotte Concert Hall under the baton of Maestro Fabio Luisi, and with piano soloist Yefim Bronfman.
