World class

The quality of the performances is at the highest level - always a great experience. The seating area could be more comfortable.

This was a chamber orchestra concert with a lovely programme, including Vivaldi and Mendelsohn. The concert hall is very small by England standards but is charming.

For a classical music lover this place is a gem. Paid less than 5£ for one premium ticket. The quality of the music was high, good acoustic in the hall and vigorous effort from the conductor. Only sad thing when I was there was the fact of the low attendance, with more people on the scene than in the audience.

A visit to the National Philharmonic house of Ukraine is a treat to melomaniacs like myself. At a petty price you can enjoy variety of decent, and even world-class performance of chamber and symphonic music, concert adoption of operas, solos as well as festivals and many more. Sadly, due to the latest escalation of unrest in the area, all concerts... More

At an incredible £7 we had a very good evening of quality music with a good range of both solo performance and orchestral works, quite a nice hall but the interval was a bit rushed

World-class orchestra playing in a lovely, intimate concert hall. Top ticket runs about $12.50 to $15 - an incredible bargain compared to what you would pay in Vienna or Paris.

Often referred to as the Kiev Philharmonic and the National Philharmonic, it was founded in the 19th century when cultural life in the city flourished. The hall itself was built on the European Square after a permit from the City Council was obtained in 1881. Throughout the years, it has hosted a substantial amount of Russian composers such as Sergei... More
