We saw a performance by the wonderful St Petersburg Philharmonic during the opening weeks of their 2017-18 season. It truly was a thoroughly enjoyable evening - the theatre is beautiful with amazing acoustics, the Orchestra was top notch, food and drinks were reasonably priced, and...More

Together with 500+ fellow passengers from the Azamara Journey cruise ship, I attended a 'Classica' concert by the St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra at their impressive home D D Shostakovich (famous Russian composer) earlier this week.

Not so classical this time. We heard "tango music" by Gershwin, Piazzolla, Gardel. The saxophone by Federico Mondelci was the best I have heard, and the same goes to the spread by Gianni Iorio. Also the orchestra was splendid. An interesting concert, and the audience...More

This is classic and traditional music hall. Some musicians has admired the acoustic of the hall as a one of the best. Prices of tickets were reasonable.

We got to be there for the evening of organ music, and it was wonderful. I just wish there were more people in the audience who could have enjoyed organ in the non-church environment.

We went there for the premiere of the Philharmonic season. Music was great, and it was nice to see the local people attending the concert (most of the people were locals there). The venue itself is good, but not especial or much sophisticated.

The Great Hall of Philharmonic is a beautiful place to see - even without the music. However, find a concert you are interested in, and try to get ticket. There are also very cheap last minute tickets, where you can sit any available seat.

One of the most amazing symphonies I've been to in many years. The venue is beautiful. The music was awesome. Loved it!
