Grachten Festival Winter Special Description

Grachten Festival Winter Special - Concert | Music Festival in Amsterdam.

The Grachten Festival Winter Special brings out young classical musicians for special Candlelight Concerts on two Thursdays in January. At the annual Grachten Festival Winter Special, iconic classics are sung and played by virtuosos at historic venues in Amsterdam like the Old Church and Walloon Church.

Classic music fans are treated to two individual performances by rising stars of the classical scene. Past performers at the Grachten Festival Winter Special include violinist Rosanne Philippens and mezzo-soprano Karin Strobos. Supporting musicians at the Winter Special have included Cello8ctet, Bram van Sambeek, and Floris Mijnders.

Modernist and world music fans have heard from a Spanish and South American repertoire of De Falla, Montsalvatge, and Piazzolla, and canonical classics like Beethoven’s Septet and Bach’s masterwork The Goldberg Variations usually make an appearance.

Tickets to the Grachten Festival Winter Special range from about €13 to around €20 per person depending on seat selection. After the concert, enjoy traditional mulled wine or hot cocoa as you meet and mingle with the performing musicians.
