A new start: on 20 September 2020 the Hamburg Laeiszhalle reopened its decorative portals to the public. In the last few months, a Corona-compatible safety concept has been worked out to ensure that people can enjoy concerts again without any worry about health risks. And the programme for the first weeks of the new season looks pretty exciting: fabulous period performance orchestras like Thomas Hengelbrock's Balthasar Neumann Ensemble play great classics by Mozart, Beethoven and Vivaldi – the ideal fix to resume the habit of concertgoing!
