NETHERLANDS CONCERT CHOIR

The Nederlands Concertkoor, formed at the initiative of Bernard Haitink in 1987, is the country’s leading amateur choir and consists of some 100 trained singers, carefully selected for their vocal and musical qualities. The choir is independent and performs with many orchestras, conductors and soloists from The Netherlands and abroad. Since 1993, the choir has been under the artistic directorship of choirmaster Rob Vermeulen. Under his leadership, the Nederlands Concertkoor has been much in demand for performances of 18th, 19th and 20th century choral music and collaborates on five to seven major choral productions per year.

In recent years the Nederlands Concertkoor has worked with, amongst others, the Residentie Orchestra of The Hague under Jaap van Zweden (Beethoven Ninth Symphony) and Matthias Bamert (Verhulst Mass in C, recorded for Chandos and released in 2003); the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra under Gerd Albrecht (Dvořák’s Requiem); the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra under Christopher Lyndon-Gee (Markevitch Cantate and Le Paradis Perdu, both recorded for Marco Polo, as well as Prokofiev Alexander Nevsky); the Royal Flanders Philharmonic Orchestra under Yutaka Sado and Jan Caeyers; the Limburg Symphony Orchestra under Jurjen Hempel (Peter Maxwell DaviesJob); the Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra under Nikolai Alekseyev, Giuliano Carella and Eri Klas (Tchaikovsky’s Evgeni Onegin); the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under Edo de Waart (Berlioz L’Enfance du Christ and Beethoven Mass in C) and Valery Gergiev (Berlioz Requiem); and the BBC Concert Orchestra under Barry Wordsworth in the opening concert, entitled ‘Highlights of the Proms’, of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw’s British Season 2003. Also in 2003, the choir toured with the Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco Peña and his Flamenco Company to Lebanon and Greece with his Misa Flamenca.
