For two months every summer, Amsterdam resonates on the global music scene as The Concertgebouw invites top-flight musicians from the Netherlands and beyond to perform at its annual Robeco SummerNights. A concept fine-tuned over the past 27 summers, its initial launch with ten classical music concerts was met with broad acclaim: “Back in the 1980s, the trend was for all the theatres and concerts halls to close during summer,” explains Saskia Roggeveen from the esteemed venue. “Since the very first edition in 1988, our approach with Robeco has always been to create an accessible programme of high-quality performances at a fair price for a wider public.”
