The percussionists of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra have made regular appearances as an independent group of soloists in the last few years. Under the name NDR Percussion they have a predilection for exploring the varied percussion repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries. For their next project the musicians have joined forces with two prizewinners of the 2019 Concours de Genève: the young lady percussionists Hyeji Bak from Korea and Marianna Bednarska from Poland worked together with the NDR musicians to develop a programme that will put music from many different regions of the world on stage – and with highly variable line-ups.

The Rolf-Liebermann-Studio was a Jewish temple until 1938. Destroyed in the Pogrom Night, ownership of the current Rolf-Liebermann-Studio passed over to the city authorities in 1941, and later to the former Northwest German Broadcasting, which arranged its conversion into a large concert hall. With its classical music concerts, readings, matinees and jazz concerts, the studio is one of the first ports of call for the culturally aware today.

The studio can also be reached easily by car, however parking spaces in the area are very limited.
The main entrance and the concert hall itself are fully accessible for visitors with limited mobility.
The hall also has an audio induction loop in place for visitors with hearing impairments.
