On September 15, music returns to the Philharmonie and we couldn’t be more excited! The season opens with a prominent cast: the first concert held on September 15 will be a Lunch Concert featuring the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg directed by Gustavo Gimeno. The concert will take place in the Grand Auditorium at 12:30.

In addition, the London Symphony Orchestra will make an appearance on September 21 and 22, directed by Sir Simon Rattle. The program on the 21st will present the audience with a new song cycle from Czech composer Ondrej Adámek, combining Bible passages with Moravian folk melodies and Indian poetry. The second program on the 22nd will be entirely orchestral, it focuses on music composed by the famous Austrian composer Anton Bruckner, specifically his Symphony No. 4.

If you love music and fitness, the Yoga & Debussy – Yin yoga is a must! On September 23 the program offers three sessions (3:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 8:00 p.m.) of yoga sessions in English. Eva Boesch will be playing the cello, Cathy Krier will be on the panio, and Laura Eyer will be the yoga instructor. Each session will last 90 minutes and tickets can be purchased online.
