    This morning I found myself in the local newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt in a photo of the crowds at the ticket office of the Elphi. First time I've got in a newspaper
    I am so sorry if I was not clear enough but I mean this is a DVD:

    Starting 2019 the position of chief conductor of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester - the resident orchestra of the Elphi - is taken up by Alan Gilbert, who is leaving the New York Philharmonic in order to lead the Hamburgers.

    Very impressive, though I've seen speaker cables recommended in the audiophile subforum that are more expensive.

    ^ Maybe it was the cables they used that drove up the costs.

    And seriously, the costs of the upcoming meeting of the so-called "G20" in Hamburg in July are estimated to be around 130 million Euro. That is 1/6 of the Elbphilharmonie (of the official cost estimate, not the fantastic number the OP's source pulled out of who-knows-where) - just for two days of His Orangeness and his cohorts making the life of ordinary Hamburgers a mess with their security measures. Compared to that, the Elbphilharmonie is not expensive. At all.

    Elbphilharmonie, yet another strain for my already ruptured bucket list.

    Another amazing external view.

    This Week is the Hamburg Pride Week, and the Elphi shines in rainbow colors - more beautiful than ever. (And of course I have again left my camera at home ) Celebrating love, freedom and music - what can be better?

    Edit: I did find a nice picture on the internet.
