Experience

Concert-Related Events

The Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle not only present outstanding concerts, they also offer concertgoers a memorable, all-round experience.

Elbphilharmonie+

Concert programmes and musicians are brought closer to audiences through pre-concert talks and »Meet the Artists« events; in seminars and workshops, the focus is on music history, discussed in detail and comprehensibly. Concertgoers are also invited to take part in thematically linked fringe events and fun activities that range from wine tastings to poetry slams!

Pre-Concert Talks

Did you know that in his famous »Four Seasons«, composer Antonio Vivaldi set a barking dog and an ice-skater’s fall to music? Such interesting facts and entertaining anecdotes are waiting to be discovered in pre-concert talks, usually held one hour before the beginning of the concert.

For 30 minutes, experienced speakers and musicologists present background information on the respective works or, with the aid of a piano, explain musical concepts in an informal manner and in layman’s terms. Occasionally, the musicians themselves go on stage to offer a special personal introduction to their concert!

Pre-Concert Talk

»Salām Syria« Project Choir

Syria meets Hamburg: as part of the »Salām Syria« festival, the Elbphilharmonie has organised a project choir for young people from Germany and Syria. For half a year, participating singers will immerse themselves in Arabic folk music. Highlight of the project: a collaborative concert alongside the Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra in the Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall!

In cooperation with the Morgenlandfestival Osnabrück.

Seminars

Pianomania

The étude was long considered a mere practice piece – until 1829, when Chopin composed his first concert études, combining pure technique and musicality. Around the same time, a real piano mania spread through Europe. Soon, almost every household owned a piano. This era and its works are the central focus of the Elbphilharmonie concert series »Pianomania« and its accompanying seminar. No prior knowledge is necessary!

Music from America

Three Elbphilharmonie festivals take on American music this season: New York Stories, Transatlantic and Maximal minimal. This illuminating seminar highlights the unusual music history of the »New World« in contrast to old Europe. Early on, it was reliant on exports like Dvořák und Stravinsky; later, jazz, pop, film and contemporary music predominated. A course for interested music lovers; prior knowledge is not a requirement.
