Since its start in 1982 the Concertzender has been known for its remarkable and adventurous programming. Genuine jazz, rare recordings from private music collections, historical or concert recordings of (yet) unknown musicians and spectacular non-Western music are all part of de Concertzender’s unique sound.
Always on the move and ever updated, de Concertzender has close contact with conservatories and concert venues, and closely follows the musicians, both professional and amateur. The creative brain of de Concertzender consists of a hundred radio producers and technicians, who work on a voluntary basis. Everybody has his or her own specialty, which enables us to present a wide range of – often relatively unknown – music and musicians.
De Concertzender stands for exceptional, serious music. All pieces are broadcast as a whole (no highlights or excerpts) and our programs are never interrupted by commercials. The announcements are kept brief, so that as much quality music as possible can be played. The broadcasts consist of a wide variety of surprising programs, 24 hours a day, using a weekly format.
The Concertzender is able to fulfill its artistic mission thanks to (financial) support from the music world: organizations as well as individuals.
