A global brand in a major city

Renowned musicians and conductors such as Sergei Babayan, Uri Caine, Thierry Escaich, the orchestra and chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre, and Valery Gergiev himself, perform with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival in 2018. In this 23th edition we celebrate maestro Valery Gergiev’s 30-year association with the city of Rotterdam. We present a trend-setting programme of international allure.

Since 1996 we have combined unforgettable concerts and recitals, organ music and symphony orchestras, Wagner and Chopin, spectacle and sublime relaxation. Among other things, we offer a platform for young talent during a conducting masterclass with maestro Valery Gergiev. This is a programme that befits the industrial metropolis Rotterdam with its unique cultural profile. Our illustrious festival offers you and your business associates an international platform of networking opportunities.

This festival exists only thanks to financing from public and private parties. You make it possible for the Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival to remain a global brand. Associating your name with this festival means investing in a durable relationship, giving a platform to emerging talent and reinforcing the image of Rotterdam as a city of culture.
