7th International Music Festival Hamburg

Variety of concerts on Hamburg's stages

This year, the International Music Festival Hamburg once again heralds the end of the season.

For more than a month, from April 28 to June 07, 2023, you can once again experience numerous concert highlights live at the Elbphilharmonie and the Laieszhalle. The motto of the International Music Festival Hamburg is "Love". First-class guests will create programmatic highlights and, as the concert calendar draws to a close, will ensure that the meaning of love is brought before your eyes (and ears).

The 2023 program - these are the themes

On the music side, the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra will perform its new organ concerto with Esa-Pekka Salonen at this year's international music festival. The festival, which runs for around four weeks, not only presents a selection of the most beautiful love compositions, but also ties in with current social discourses with other performances.

Other highlights of the festival include the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra and the Ensemble Resonnanz, as well as a performance of Jörg Widmann's oratorio "ARCHE" by the Philharmonic State Orchestra with Kent Nagano. The International Music Festival traditionally offers the performing musicians the opportunity to realize their very special projects and programs. All program details and highlights can be found here.
