The official SonyBMG Masterworks discography link for this artist is as follows

It (in most cases) contains a full listing of in-print CDs released on the SonyBMG labels within the US (for the moment), along with track listings and in some cases audio clips (which will become more robust in the new year). Ecommerce links are provided inobtrusively.

I have been informed that it creates a conflict of interest to post these links directly from my account, so please consider adding the page to the link section. Thanks.

First conductor / second conductor / Jansons' contract[edit]

I changed the text on first conductor to the singular from the plural to reflect the Dutch grammar:

  • conductor = dirigent
  • conductors = dirigenten

Also, can anyone find a citation for the extension of Jansons' contract as chief conductor? I have had absolutely no luck with that at all, even with a Dutch-language article, short of actually contacting the orchestra. Thanks, DJRafe 18:40, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Second sentence of the 7th paragraph states, "After van Beinum's death, Haitink became the orchestra's first conductor in September 1959." Since this is clearly not the case, I changed the word 'first' to 'next'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Capekeith (talkcontribs) 17:52, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Article format[edit]

Would it be possible to add some subject headings and a table of contents to the article. It would make it easier to read. (talk) 17:47, 29 January 2008 (UTC)


It only got the "Royal" part of its name in the past decade or so. For most of its life it was simply the Concertgebouw Orchestra. We need to make this distinction. -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 19:06, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

The orchestra is "Royal" since 1988, the Concertgebouw (hall) since 2013. Hartenhof (talk) 09:33, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
