Amsterdam Concertgebouw Highlights Aug-Sept 2013

With an overwhelming choice of live music events these days, how does one go about choosing the right concert? This post will feature some of the classical music highlights taking place in Amsterdam' Concertgebouw between Aug-Sept with associated Spotify playlist for those who aren't able to attend any of these. (One of the concerts is available in HD online).

I'm fortunate enough to live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Amsterdam is a city alive with culture. Classical music is well represented, with three main venues which regularly host classical concerts, namely: Concertgebouw, Muziekgebouw and Muziektheatre. The Concertgebouw on the Museumplein is the primary concert venue of the city and is one of the great concert halls of the world. There are approximately 700 concerts in the Concertgebouw each year. So how does one choose what to see from this overwhelming selection?
