The Isarphilharmonie is Munich’s largest concert hall. By the time the Gasteig in Haidhausen has been fully renovated, many other national and international orchestras, including our own Munich Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Munich Chamber Orchestra will have played here. The city’s major concert agencies will also offer both classical and popular music concerts in this hall.
The auditorium consists of ground-level stalls with a level, flexible section and inclined floor for tiered seating at ground level, a dress circle and a choir balcony on level 1 and galleries on level 2. There is an elevator to all levels except the top gallery.
The hall is ideal for classical music, popular music, film screenings and more.
The building consists of a steel structure with an internal volume of nearly 60,000 cubic metres, into which a 1900-seat concert hall made of prefabricated solid wood elements is fitted. The new hall’s acoustics were designed by Nagata Acoustics International, the company of renowned acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, who was also involved in the construction of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie and the Philharmonie de Paris. The Isarphilharmonie at Gasteig HP8 in Sendling is being built by the general contractor NÜSSLI to the plans of architects gmp – Gerkan, Marg und Partner.
Stage and Equipment
The stage has a maximum area of app. 272 m² and is equipped with lighting and permanently installed Meyer Sound PA (see below for more details). Backstage stage there are delivery access, tuning and artists’ rooms as well as a recording studio.
The foyer of the Isarphilharmonie is housed in the striking Hall E, a former transformer warehouse dating from the 1920s that has been renovated from the ground up, taking care to retain its unique industrial flair. With its brick exterior, it is spacious and bright inside, not least thanks to its large glass roof. Even the old industrial crane remains suspended under the ceiling. On the ground floor, the hall houses a buzzing foyer complete with reading café, bar, information and ticket desk as well as a cinema.
