Astronomers in the ancient world already tried to work out the laws that govern the universe. The ensemble ORLANDOviols gives people a chance to experience the magic of the planets with works from the Renaissance to the present, played on viols and accompanied by live electronics and a light installation. A taster of the guest appearance by Ensemble Correspondances at the Laeiszhalle on 28 January.

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.
