‘With the COE, I don’t feel I’m a conductor anymore. I feel I’m a musician who can make music with them.’
— Bernard Haitink, Conductor


Over the years, the COE has developed particularly close and mutually enriching relationships with some conductors and soloists, working with them several times per season for many years. This is the case of Bernard Haitink, Nikolaus † and Alice Harnoncourt, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Sir András Schiff, all Honorary Members of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.
