What is a horsehead fiddle and what is a swan neck lute? How are they made and how do you play them? Can anyone learn the special technique of Mongolian overtone singing? In this lecture concert, the Mongolian band Egschiglen presents traditional music and dance. The musicians also explain the symbolic meaning of their instruments and relate the age-old tales and legends that shaped Mongolia's culture.

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.
