Elbphilharmonie Hamburg presents program in opening season

Hamburg’s latest landmark, the impressive Elbphilharmonie concert hall is scheduled to open on January 11-12, 2017. Christoph Lieben-Seutter, Artistic Director of the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle, recently presented the programmes offered at both establishments in the upcoming 2016/17 season in the presence of Mayor Olaf Scholz.

Concerts by the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra conducted by Thomas Hengelbrock on January 11 and 12 will get the season off to a start. These concerts are geared towards all music enthusiasts and lovers of classical music who are likely to find a new approach to music through Hamburg’s latest architectural symbol. The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg aims to be “a building for everyone”, thanks not only to the Plaza which will open on November 4, 2016 and with a panoramic view of the port and city, but also to the diverse, accessible and quality concert programme. Affordable admission fees with around 450,000 tickets available in the opening season until July 2017 will emphasise this message. During the first six months, over 200 concerts will be staged in the great concert hall and 100 in the smaller hall.
