It is not the concert hall that matters, it is the Berliner Philarmoniker that matters. The building is a bit run down but the acoustics and the #1 Orchestra in the world is worth the ticket price.

Disappointing in that it only opens between 3-6 pm each day. That's what a state subsidy does for you.

So this was one of the best musical experiences of my life. I finally had the chance to see the inside of this beautiful modern hall. And the performance was just plain superb, lots of activity, lots of drama. Great sight lines. Comfortable seating.

The orchestra is wonderful. We heard an amazing pianist. The building is very modern, lovely, and well-staffed. A nice feature was the availability of cabs after the performance.

My wife and I saw a great performance of Sibelius and Shostakovitch. We are not classical music experts but loved a fantastic performance in a great space.
