Subscription concerts / Series 2018/19

The new programme features great names in classical music, from outstanding instrumentalists such as Jordi Savall and Lang Lang to soprano Patricia Petibon to Sir Simon Rattle visiting with the London Symphony Orchestra. Guest appearances by renowned ensembles including the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra from Amsterdam round off the wide-ranging musical artistry.

These innovative formats offer encounters with a dazzling array of cultures and genres, including the Tunisian oud player Anouar Brahem, the jazz singer Gregory Porter or the German industrial band Einstürzenden Neubauten. The series «Urban» showcases work from Icelandic sound artist Ólafur Arnalds as well as the prolific jazz pianist Chilly Gonzales, among other talents. 

In the 2018/19 season, the Philharmonie takes young audiences on a journey to new and different worlds: in the far-flung footsteps of Portuguese explorers, travelling with Momotarō (also known as «Peach Boy») to Japan, with the Stork Caliph to Iraq, with the Luxembourg Jazz Orchestra to the United States in the 1950s, and with Loopino to Antarctica. Young audiences can enjoy a diverse offering of concerts, musical theatre, and workshops developed for audiences from 0 to 13.
