The concert of one of the world's most famous, most important and most excellent symphony orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, under the prominent and versatile conductor Philippe Herreweghe, is one of the highlights of the Saturday at Lisinski concert season.With its first concert within this cycle almost ten years ago, this 130-year old orchestra from Amsterdam and its performance in front of an audience of around 2500 turned the Small Hall of Dom Sportova Hall into “the world's most beautiful concert hall”. Their second appearance within the cycle will take place as part of their RCO meets Europe Tour (2016 – 2018), with which they want to spread to all EU member countries the fundamental idea and ideals that can hold Europe together – as a unique mosaic of cultures, both ancient and modern. That “world’s best orchestra” has a unique reputation, according to a 2008 Gramophone Magazine survey. This is supported by data: it performs for audiences of around 250,000 and gives forty concerts in world's leading concert halls every year. It has recorded more than a thousand albums so far. It even founded its own record label RCO Live in 2004.  Numerous music history's greats have conducted the orchestra and cooperated with it as soloists over the course of history: Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Béla Bartók, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Sergei Prokofiev and Arthur Nikisch, Otto Klemperer, Rafael Kubelík, Karl Böhm, Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Sir Colin Davies, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta and others. The Zagreb Music Academy Symphony Orchestra will also participate in the performance of Overture to Egmont, op.84. This will implement the idea of the Concertgebouw Orchestra's Side by Side project – to perform at least one piece with a youth orchestra from the member country that they are visiting.
