Dutch Sounds

First-rate Dutch musicians

Get to know the music of first-rate Dutch musicians and composers

The Netherlands has countless first-rate musicians and composers, many of whom have resounding international reputations. But who are they? And what does their music sound like? The Muziekgebouw is more than happy to introduce them to you. In Dutch Sounds we offer an English pre-concert talk in a comfortable and informal setting with drinks. And afterwards you can enjoy the post-concert chat and get to know some other English-speaking city dwellers.

Language no problem
Every year the Muziekgebouw presents over 200 concerts, performed by top musicians in a variety of genres: from contemporary to classical, to jazz and electronic… all in fantastic acoustics. Although language is naturally no issue in music, our introductions are often in Dutch, which may be a problem. As an acquaintance to the Muziekgebouw we are therefore organising three concerts this season especially for our city’s English speakers, as a prelude to a larger future series and a bilingual website.
