For Wolf Kerschek, travelling around Poland for the first time was a peculiar feeling: »My grandmother was a Polish translator, my father was born in Pomerania. I don’t speak the language myself and yet I felt a close bond with the country.« This encounter with Polish folk culture put in motion a special chain of associations: »Vladislav Sendecki is my favourite pianist and I discovered certain musical parallels. So I composed a piano concerto for him and the NDR Big Band. Together we named it ›My Polish Heart‹.« The name of Kerschek’s work is now taken as the title for a whole series of concerts beginning in November that focuses on Poland as a musical nation.

Location

Elbphilharmonie Hamburg
Großer Saal

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«.
