Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra

Netherlands Radio Philharmonic OrchestraSimon van Boxtel

The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (RFO) has a prominent place in the Dutch music scene. Its inexhaustible commitment to the highest artistic quality and a balanced program qualifies the RFO as one of the best orchestras in the Netherlands. The orchestra was founded in 1945 by Albert van Raalte and was then led by successively Paul van Kempen, Bernard Haitink, Jean Fournet, Willem van Otterloo, Hans Vonk, Sergiu Comissiona, Edo de Waart and Jaap van Zweden. In 2012, Markus Stenz was appointed chief conductor. The American conductor James Gaffigan was appointed principal guest conductor since the 2011-2012 season. Bernard Haitink is Patron of the RFO.

The RFO worked with renowned guest conductors as Leopold Stokowski, Kirill Kondrashin, Antal Dorati, Riccardo Muti, Kurt Masur, Mariss Jansons, Gennady Rozhdestvensky and Valery Gergiev. The RFO provides important contributions to the NTR Saturday Matinee and The Sunday morning concert series in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and to the AVROTROS Fridayconcert series in Utrecht. The RFO excels in particular programmed symphonic concerts and concert opera performances, containing many first performances in the Netherlands and world premieres. In addition, the RFO appeared at international festivals like Strasbourg’s Musica, the Edinborough Festival, and at the BBC Proms 2011 at the Royal Albert Hall. The RFO appears frequently in the best concerthalls throughout Europe, with performances in Vienna, Cologne, München, Berlin, Paris, and the UK.

The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra has built an impressive CD catalogue, including amongst others legendary recordings from the 70' s, recordings of the complete symphonies of Mahler conducted by Edo de Waart and CDs with works by contemporary composers such as Jonathan Harvey, Klas Torstensson and Jan van Vlijmen.
