Schubert with Klaus Florian Vogt at the Elbphilharmonie

With the programme "Junge, komm bald wieder!", members of the Philharmonic present music in places which are currently not accessible, or only with limitations: from swimming pools to cinemas to traditional bars. We would like to bring culture to people's homes, and at the same time remind us all of places which he haven't been able to visit for weeks. Follow us on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter und Instagram, and most importantly: stay healthy!
