About the Concert

Tickets for these and other events will go on sale on 21 JUNE, as will election tickets for the coming season.

Elephant concert! Unplayable! Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto is feared by many pianists. And indeed, it presents enormous technical difficulties. Yet the pace at which the work begins is quite light-footed for an elephant concerto...
Boris Giltburg, who plays it in our short concert, seems to effortlessly ignore the challenges of the work and spreads an enormously emotional and stirring musical world before us.

In our abFRACKt series, things are different: the concert lasts no more than an hour, the musicians don't play in black tails, and no one has to fear clapping in the wrong place.

And you don't need any special knowledge to understand the music "correctly". Just come, listen and be surprised. And if you want to learn more about the music, you can download the free Wolfgang app onto your smartphone and be guided through the respective work live in concert.

Afterwards, we invite you to stay in our foyers, get a glass of wine or beer in the Café "Tutti" and relax a bit more, talk or simply look out over the city from the balcony...
