Gaudeamus Music Week comes to a close.
Reporting live from the 2008 Gaudeamus Music Week activities.
A word about the spectacular venue where most Gaudeamus Music Week events take place: The Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.
An annual gathering along the old docklands of the IJ signals the start of the cultural season.
This year marks my third visit to Amsterdam for the Gaudeamus Music Week, and it’s become something of a end-of-summer ritual: two or three concerts a day filled with premiere performances, discussions with the jury and other participants in the afternoons, then nighttime waterside drinks on the dock of the stellar new Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.
