The Concert Hall
Close to the hotel lies the concert hall. The architect of the building was Adolf Leonard van Gendt, who, for inspiration, drew on the Neue Gewandhaus in Leipzig, built two years earlier (and destroyed in 1943). Construction commenced in 1883 in a pasture beyond what was then the confines of the city in Amstelveen. 2,186 piles twelve to thirteen meters in length were sunk into the sandy soil. The hall opened on April 11, 1888, with an inaugural concert in which an orchestra of 120 musicians and a chorus of 500 singers participated, performing works of Wagner, Handel, Bach, and Beethoven.
When the Concertgebouw was built, acoustics were something of a black art; like in shipbuilding, designers drew upon what worked in the past without entirely understanding the underlying science (even today it is still not well understood). When the building had been completed, the acoustics were not perfect, and a lot of effort went into fine-tuning the aural ambience. During later restorations, particular care has been taken not to alter the materials used for interior decoration with this in mind.
Today, some eight hundred concerts per year take place in the Concertgebouw for a public of 850,000, which makes it the best visited concert hall in the world.
