Klaus Mäkelä has been invited to conduct the Royal Concertgebouworkest’s Christmas Matinee concert, replacing Fabio Luisi at short notice.

With a programme featuring Beethoven’s Pastorale Symphony and Debussy’s La Mer, the traditional annual concert filmed from the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam will take place without audience and streamed nationwide on Dutch TV on Christmas Day. International audiences can enjoy the concert online as a free stream on the orchestra’s website on December 26 at 14.00 CET.
