Silk may have given the trade route its name, but pepper, turmeric and other spices were also among the goods transported on the Silk Road. And you can taste some of those on this special evening. To go with these fine spicy tones, the Afghan ensemble Safar presents aromatic music featuring drums and lutes – a synesthetic journey that packs an olfactory and musical punch.

The Elbphilharmonie's supporting programme offers a variety of different angles on the music performed – either to complement the concert itself, or as an experience in its own right. As a rule, the Elbphilharmonie+ events are interdisciplinary in nature: exhibitions, talks to accompany a particular concert or events featuring flamenco dancing or scat singing. They take place in the Elbphilharmonie itself in some cases, as well as in museums, libraries and local culture centres.
