St. Petersburg Small Philharmonic "Engelgardt" Hall (established 1828)

SCHEDULE for St. Petersburg Small Philharmonic "Engelgardt" Hall (established 1828) 2017

St. Petersburg Small Philharmonic Engelgardt HallOn May 15, 1949 the new chamber hall of the Leningrad Philharmonia was re-opened in the old building in Nevsky Prospect. It was called the Leningrad Philharmonias Small Hall. The creation of this hall was based on the rich Russian chamber music traditions.

The first sprouts of chamber art appeared on the banks of the Neva in the early XVIII century (salon music parties of the enlightened nobility). The building housing the hall was erected in the middle of the XVIII century after the design by F.B. Rastrelli. The spacious hall with the elegant adjoining rooms on the second floor were initially used for balls and masquerades. In 1802 the Philharmonic Society, the first one in Europe, started its concert activity in the hall.

Soon the property went over to his wife, and the celebrated hall went down into history as "Mrs. Engelgartds Hall". The hall witnessed many important events of the Russian artistic life, such as the Russian premiere of Beethoven Ninth Symphony, concerts given by Lizst, Field, Talberg, A. Rubinstein.

Since the very first season the Halls concert activity has been broad and diverse. The central place was taken by concerts dedicated to memorial dates and recitals of contemporary composers such as D. Shostakovich, G. Sviridov, V. Soloviov-Sedoi, A. Petrov. New works of St. Petersburg composers such as Salmanov, Slonimsky, Tishchenko, Gavrilin were premiered here. In the spring, 1965 the first festival "Musical Spring in Leningrad" was held in the Hall.
