Forget about sleeping in. Wake up on Sunday morning with the Residentie Orkest’s scrumptious symphonic breakfast. While you are enjoying great coffee, freshly squeezed juice and a delicious bite to eat, our musicians will treat you to some of the finest and most compelling pieces ever written. Make Sunday the highlight of your week with the relaxing sounds of cellos, violins and choral voices.

We arrange a good start for your morning.
Preceding the concert we serve coffee, tea, orange juice and a small snack of charge.

In this performance, our principal guest conductor, Richard Egarr, works with Swiss cellist Christian Poltéra for the first time. This top cellist has been commended for his pure, refined playing and the superb sound of his 1711 Stradivarius cello. Poltéra will be playing one of Haydn’s most beloved works, his Cello Concerto No. 1. Egarr will then take us to sunny climes with Mendelssohn’s dazzling Italian symphony.
