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.

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
