Jean Guillou, organ
Mussorgsky / Guillou / Bach
Jean Guillou is an institution in the organ world: he has made a name for himself as an organist, composer and visionary like hardly any other, and he is always engaged in the search for new tonal possibilities for the organ of the future. To mark his 88th birthday, he performs, among other works, his opus magnum »La révolte des orgues« during his concert in the Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall.

Heart of the Elbphilharmonie: the Grand Hall seats 2,000 guests in the »vineyard« style. The stage for artists and orchestras is situated at the centre of the concert hall and is surrounded by terraced seating.
Finding Your Seat
All visitors enter the building via the main entrance. Admission takes place in the entrance foyer and is by concert ticket only. The »Tube«, an 82-metre-long, curved escalator, leads visitors up to the Plaza following admission.
From the Plaza, access to the concert foyers is via stairs and lifts. The main cloakroom is situated on the 11th floor and the hall entrances are on floors 12, 13, 15 and 16. Please follow signs to the area in which your designated seat is located, as indicated on your ticket.

Coughing, Clapping, Chatting – Recommendations for Sensitive Acoustics
A concert at the Elbphilharmonie is a unique experience for both audience and artists. Guests and musicians alike rave about the precise acoustics in the Grand Hall. You can hear every note, even from the highest balcony.
Unfortunately, the opposite is also true: even presumably quiet noises from the audience are clearly audible in the entire hall. We therefore ask our visitors to take the following recommendations into consideration, because »Everything Can Be Heard Here«.
The main cloakroom of the Grand Hall is situated on the 11th floor, at the south and north side of the Elbphilharmonie.
Baby carriages, wheeled walkers, walking-stick umbrellas, handbags larger than DIN A3 (42 cm x 30 cm) as well as sport bags, backpacks and suitcases must be checked in at the cloakroom. If required, wheeled walkers can be parked in the immediate vicinity of the hall entrances. Our front of house staff is happy to assist you in this regard.
Cloakroom fee: €1.50
