Muziekgebouw aan t ij

The Muziekgebouw – founded in 2005 – is the most important stage in the Netherlands for contemporary music. The ceiling, walls, chairs and floor of the main concert hall are all flexible and moveable, which make it a very suitable hall for intimate chamber music as well as bigger ensembles. Musicians and critics acknowledge the excellent acoustics.
