The Residentie Orchestra of the Hague is a renowned Dutch orchestra founded in 1904 by Henri Viotta. It received its first acclaim during the 1911 Richard Strauss Festival, in which the composer himself conducted some of his works. The orchestra soon attracted other composers such as Igor Stravinsky, Max Reger, Maurice Ravel, and Paul Hindemith.
The orchestra has undertaken several major tours and included cities such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Vienna, Munich and Berlin. It has performed under guest conductors including Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez, Hans Knappertsbusch, Arturo Toscanini, and Bruno Walter.
