The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra was established in 1888 and is based in the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. For the last 125 years the orchestra has been among the most prominent orchestras in the world. The Dutch Queen Beatrix personally conferred the ‘Royal’ title upon the orchestra. The orchestra is known for having only six chief conductors over the last 125 years, setting it apart from orchestras of similar age and calibre. Currently under the baton of the eminent conductor Mariss Jansons, the Orchestra consists of 120 individually superb artists from over 20 different countries.
