About the Festival

From 9 to 18 May 2025, the Royal Concertgebouw will host the third Mahler Festival in its history. As a grand tribute to the composer, orchestras from around the world will come together in Amsterdam 105 years after the first Mahler Festival.


About the Festival

  • During the Mahler Festival 2025, all of Gustav Mahler's symphonies and songs will be played over ten days (May 9 through May 18, 2025) in the Main Hall and Recital Hall of The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. The symphonies will be performed in order: from number 1 to number 10. This makes the festival - in the Main Hall - a unique chronological journey through Mahler's life and symphonic work.
