“Lovely venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is a wonderful addition to Melbourne's cultural scene. The acoustics in the main auditorium are excellent and the timber finishes everywhere are so representative of our country. It is a very versatile venue with a smaller area for more casual entertainment which suits more intimate performances.

“Lovely new venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a great new venue, it s also known as the Dame Elizabeth Murdoch recital centre, ( whom I had the pleasure to meet once) the acoustics are state of the art and the woodwork is amazing considering we are not in a third world country where buildings such as these cost so much less to build

“A must for any music lover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

My son asked me to join him to see Chris Botti.....who said I....what on a Sunday evening.....oh well, good value........so I walked along and sat down......then started looking around and I was amazed to see the stunning design.......as a few sounds appeared my ears and eyes were suddenly focused on this brilliant trumpet player, wow I thought, who is this.......oh well 2 hours later I was hoping it would never end, the sound, the hall was just a brilliant combination of beauty in design and in quality of music! I am now a fan......of both places.......what's up next!!

“Beautiful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I always love attending the Melbourne Recital centre. Perfect for international or interstate friends to show them a good time. I suggest booking a small or chamber ensemble as it is designed to bring out these sounds perfectly. Baroque music is stunning in this venue.

“Wonderful sound & ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Went to see Glen Hansard in concert, terrific. Very impressed with the architecture of the building, the interior use of wood is beautiful, and the acoustics are excellent. The windows include louvres, and even the odd-shaped windows were open to let in the fresh air to the foyer area. Wonderful new venue, a great addition to Melbourne's arts precinct. I'd love to go back to hear a chamber otchestra.
