Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you know what you want, this place is definitely for you. The hall is a home of two great symphonic orchestras.

This was the very hall where Shostakovich's 7th "Leningrad" Symphony had its first Leningrad performance in 1942 right in the middle of the blockade. The musicians were starving, the audience was starving, but they insisted on making music. For that reason alone, this is worth a visit. We heard an excellent concert by the Philharmonic but found the acoustics a little deadening. I later heard that the best place for listening is upstairs, so that is where we will go next time!

We saw a performance by the wonderful St Petersburg Philharmonic during the opening weeks of their 2017-18 season. It truly was a thoroughly enjoyable evening - the theatre is beautiful with amazing acoustics, the Orchestra was top notch, food and drinks were reasonably priced, and it was all in all a great night out. Absolutely worth a visit, not just to see the hall but also hear some great music (make sure you catch the Philharmonic if you can - it is truly a great orchestra!)

Together with 500+ fellow passengers from the Azamara Journey cruise ship, I attended a 'Classica' concert by the St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra at their impressive home D D Shostakovich (famous Russian composer) earlier this week.

It was a most enjoyable evening with superb facilities (the Grand Hall was constructed in 1839 and is today equipped with excellent acoustics) and the outstandind St Petersburg Philadelphia which - dating from 1802 - is Russia's oldest one.

Finally, the Artistic Director/Conductor Alexander Kantorov was not only professional to the extreme but interacted well with the audience. Something not to be missed should the opportunity ever present itself.

I wanted to see a Philharmonic concert and was not disappointed. The music we enjoyed the acoustics great.

Not so classical this time. We heard "tango music" by Gershwin, Piazzolla, Gardel. The saxophone by Federico Mondelci was the best I have heard, and the same goes to the spread by Gianni Iorio. Also the orchestra was splendid. An interesting concert, and the audience was lively and enthusiastic.
It is not very easy to orientate in the fine building, when we found the cafe it was too late already.
We bought the tickets in the internet, to a very moderate price.

This is classic and traditional music hall. Some musicians has admired the acoustic of the hall as a one of the best. Prices of tickets were reasonable.

We got to be there for the evening of organ music, and it was wonderful. I just wish there were more people in the audience who could have enjoyed organ in the non-church environment.

We went there for the premiere of the Philharmonic season. Music was great, and it was nice to see the local people attending the concert (most of the people were locals there). The venue itself is good, but not especial or much sophisticated.

The Great Hall of Philharmonic is a beautiful place to see - even without the music. However, find a concert you are interested in, and try to get ticket. There are also very cheap last minute tickets, where you can sit any available seat.
