The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra continued its 2023 European tour with a performance in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The venue was none other than the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam's world famous concert hall, known for its stunning beauty, pristine acoustics, and for hosting the world's top orchestras.
Pianist Víkingur Ólafsson again dazzled the crowd, who called him on stage for an encore. SLSO musicians were eager to play in the space. Less than a dozen musicians were with the orchestra when it last performed here in 1993.
The tour continues with a concert in Madrid, Spain.
