The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (NRPO) was established in 1945. Its current chief conductor is Markus Stenz and the American conductor James Gaffigan is principal guest conductor. The renowned conductor Bernard Haitink is patron of the NRPO. The NRPO has worked with the world’s foremost guest conductors and given first performances of works by, among others, Messiaen, Berio, Boulez, Carter, Adams, Adès and Ustvolskaya. As one of the flagship orchestras for the Dutch Broadcasting Authority, the NRPO occupies a prominent place in concert series in Amsterdam and Utrecht. The NRPO has also appeared at festivals in Edinburgh, Brussels, Strasbourg and at the BBC Proms, and has undertaken tours to Great Britain, Germany, Austria and Singapore. Recordings of Wagner’s Lohengrin, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Parsifal, performed by the NRPO, the Netherlands Radio Choir and vocal soloists under the direction of former chief conductor Jaap van Zweden, met internationally with great critical acclaim. The orchestra’s impressive discography has recently been replenished with recordings of works by Bruckner, Richard Rijnvos and Otto Ketting.
