About this festival

»Utopia« is the motto of the 3rd Hamburg International Music Festival, which will be held from 27 April to 30 May 2018. After the two previous biennale events in 2014 and 2016, the music festival takes place annually in future.

The third edition of the Hamburg International Music Festival presents 41 different programmes in 62 concerts. Musicians from Hamburg perform 20 of these, while soloists, ensembles and orchestras from Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Great Britain and the USA are responsible for the other 21 programmes.

Highlights include a performance of Beethoven’s »Missa Solemnis« to open the festival, a two-day guest appearance by La Scala, Milan, with the Verdi Requiem, and concerts with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
