    It is the second biggest city in Germany. Berlin is bigger, but they would probably not afford it.

    They claim that this concert-hall has the best acoustics to date. I would like the first TC visitor to report on this.

    Amazing! I would like to see TC report on this also. I googled and it said "only" 2073 seat capacity. Compared to this list of concert halls.

    Dutch reports are quite critical: the acoustics are against the violins and in favour of oboes & clarinets - on the shrill side. But that can be mended, I suppose.

    Yes, it is very expensive. And yes, there have been delays and scandals during the building. But it is also beautiful, and a project that I believe, we classical fans should rather support than criticize. And isn't it what makes a country like Germany into a civilized, cultured nation - the ability to finance the achievements of human spirit, like music, architecture and other arts, rather than only the mere necessities?
    Agreed. Of course, it helps that since the end of WW II, the NATO has preferred that resources formerly devoted to the German Military be reallocated to cultural activities...
