Camerata RCO, formed by members of Amsterdam’s famed Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, performs chamber music in multiple formations with a focus on Classical and Romantic repertoire for winds and strings. In concert at Penn State for the first time, Camerata RCO will perform Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A and Franz Schubert’s Octet in F Major. A love of chamber music inspires the musicians to divert time from their hectic schedules, as members of one of the world’s great orchestras, to perform as Camerata RCO. Praised by a New York Times critic for its “warm, glowing performance,” the ensemble enjoys success in the Netherlands and in about fifty concerts a year in music capitals across the planet. Recent ensemble highlights include a tour of South Korea; a residency at the Festival Musika-Música in Bilbao, Spain; a United Kingdom debut in Cambridge, England; and a benefit concert led by New York Philharmonic music director designate and former Concertgebouw concertmaster Jaap Van Zweden. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.
