Gergiev & World War I
Welcome to the website of the 19th Rotterdam Philharmonic Gergiev Festival.
A hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War the 2014 edition of the festival paints an impressive picture of big industrial, social, cultural and musical developments in times of fierce conflict. The recurring theme is a symphonic triptych with iconic works by Ravel, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and their contemporaries. The Festival programme also features chamber music, lectures, a night concert, jazz and theatre. You can find detailed information about it on this site; you can also order your tickets, whole-day tickets and passe-partout tickets online here. We look forward to seeing you at the Festival!
