This is home to Leipzig's world famous orchestra, now under the direction of the Latvian conductor, Andris Nelsons. Its name actually means ' Garment House' dating back to the history of the first building, whereas this is the third building constructed in 1981. The motto...More

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

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

The Gewandhaus was closed when I visited Leipzig, but the architecture was impressive. The monument in the Augustusplatz was also impressive. The former concert hall was destroyed in WWII but the monument has been standing intact since the 1700s.

We went here to one of the Bach Festival concerts and we were definitely NOT disappointed! The "new" building/architecture was amazing and bold and the acoustics inside the performance hall rival that of the Concertgebow (sp) in Amsterdam. Very modern in a very ancient city......More

Gewandhausorchester is one of the best orchestras in the world, and the Grosser Saal is beautiful and acoustically great place to listen to music. However, if you're into more modern music, you won't find it here very often, as the Gewandhaus repertoire is mostly old-fashioned,...More
