Excellent acoustics, and one of the best orchestras of the world. What else can a music lover ask for? I got a cheap ticket of 23 euro and the seat had a good view of the scenario and the sound was perfectly balanced.

A birthday treat from our daughter, we went to a concert that featured Beethoven's 1st Piano Concerto (great) and Benjamin Britten (not our taste) and Rachmaninov's 3rd Symphony (a bit inscrutable for me) - though obviously brilliant musicians. The venue is superb - go if...More

I thought this was bland and average, but as you can see Leipzig in a day it has to be passed through so tak e it in and enjoy as part of city etc

We attended the ORGELKONZERT ZUM OSTERFEST held on March 31st by Michael Schönheit. Beautiful experience, room packed only in the sectors kept open (I imagine that, when the concert is, as in this case, by organ, not all sectors guarantee the same quality of listening);...More

If you are in Leipzig, remember that this city is home to the most appraised concert hall of the world. Do not just see it from outside; try to go to a concert as I did. The hall is not enriched with artistic treasures; in...More
