What to Expect
Experience a special evening concert devoted to famous artists of classical music. The concert features masterpieces by Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, and Bach in the impressive Hercules Hall of the Munich Residenz. The Hercules Hall was originally the throne room of Louis I and was built after the reconstruction as a concert hall. It served as a substitute for Klenze’s destroyed Odeon and was the most important concert hall in Munich up until the opening of the Philharmonic Hall in Gasteig. It got its name from the tapestries on the wall that depict the legend of Hercules and were commissioned by Albrecht V in 1556.
With a new concert series, the renowned "Residenz Soloists" want to offer a stage in the cultural capital of Munich to the young, international rising stars of symphony. Under the title of "Star Concerts," these young, passionate talents play an ambitious and diverse program of selected masterworks, symphonies, solo evenings, and gems of chamber music in the Hercules Hall.
