The concerts in Elbphilharmonie are sold out. We appreciate the great interest in the concerts. Please be aware that some online platforms offer overpriced tickets which are often frauds. Hamburg Elbphilharmonie is also indicating the same.

The WDO is looking forward to opening the concert with György Ligeti’s Atmosphères, consistently a pathbreaking work. Also, we are proud to present the international reknowned harpist Xavier de Maistre as a soloist with François-Adrien Boïeldieus Concerto for Harp and Orchestra. And due to the amazing success in concerts in Munich and Salzburg in April 2017, WDO will perform again Richard Wagners The Ring without words, masterly arranged by Lorin Maazel as an one-hour symphonic synthesis of the fifteen hours of the Ring of the Nibelung operas.

The proceeds of the Hamburg concerts will be donated to Kroschke Kinderstiftung and the project “Herzbrücke” of Albertinen-Stiftung Hamburg.

The proceeds of the concert in Berlin will go to Hugo-Tempelman-Stiftung.

The concerts in Elbphilharmonie will be performed under the patronage of Prof. Monika Grütters, Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Cornelia Prüfer-Storcks, Senator of Health and Consumer Protection of Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg, and Prof. Dr. med. Frank Ulrich Montgomery, President of the German Medical Association and of the Hamburg Medical Association. The concert in Philharmonie Berlin will be also performed under the patronage of Prof. Monika Grütters and Prof. Dr. med. Frank Ulrich Montgomery.
