Discover the new season of the Pierre Boulez Saal

Welcome to our second season!

Flexibility, openness, and musical curiosity-these remain the essential ideas of the Pierre Boulez Saal's programming in its second season. They are ideally reflected in the hall's unique architectural and acoustic profile, created by Frank Gehry and Yasuhisa Toyota and designed to adapt to every artistic need. The modular, elliptic space can take on different shapes, making each concert a one-of-a-kind experience. 

For the artistic program, which takes its inspiration from the humanistic idea of education through music, Daniel Barenboim coined the metaphor of "music for the thinking ear" and it remains the central motive of the 2017-18 season in all its stylistic diversity and breadth of content.
