Elbphilharmonie unveils 2017/2018 programme. Over 600 concerts, 20 leading orchestras and many global soloists feature in Elphilharmonie’s new concert season
The opening ceremonies of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg took place. It´s not just a site for music; it is a full-fledged residential and cultural complex.
Another milestone towards an extraordinary acoustic is achieved: the 6,000 square metre – and worldwide unique – wall and ceiling membrane in the Great Hall of the Elbphilharmonie is finished. In addition to room geometry and materials, the so-called “Weisse Haut” is responsible for the perfect distribution of sound in the concert hall.
The vineyard principle in the grand hall creates a special closeness between audience and artists. A maximum distance of 30 metres between the conductor and the audience in the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg will bring music closer than in any other concert hall worldwide.
The Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall will become a unique location for performances of classical music, music of the 21st century and sophisticated musical entertainment. The opening is now scheduled for spring 2017.
