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.

Our third visit to Leipzig and third visit to the Gewandhaus. As usual the orchestral performance was outstanding. Also the experience of an evening to this fantastic auditorium(built in DDR times) is well worth it. However on this particular occasion we were taking friends and...More

We did not get inside to a concert, but the building is impressive. The main windows had banners proclaiming that they had been in business for 275 years.

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
