A Music Festival for the Soul

The fourth edition of the »music festival for the soul«, which is held in the city’s brightly lit concert halls and churches, takes place in February 2019. Over the course of three weeks, audiences are treated to music that will help them escape the greyness of a Hamburg winter: for the French composer Olivier Messiaen, music was a portal to another, transcendental sphere. This philosophy makes the composer the ideal figurehead for the Elbphilharmonie’s »Lux aeterna« festival.


Tickets for the next »Lux aeterna« festival are now available to purchase.
