Ciconia Consort

"Surprising repertoire, surprising level of ambition - a discovery," Bas van Putten (NRC / De Groene Amsterdammer) wrote enthusiastically about the Ciconia Consort. The members of the orchestra are leading young musicians, who have won their spurs at national and international competitions and concert stages. They are led by conductor Dick van Gasteren, who himself learned the tricks of the trade from Jan Stulen and Bernard Haitink, among others.
