The best modern acoustics
The opening of DR Koncerthuset means a national and international concert venue for Denmark and a new architectural landmark for the capital. Jean Nouvel’s unique building puts Copenhagen on a level with other cities around the world which provide the best modern acoustic and visual setting for concertgoers.
As you approach DR Koncerthuset a fabulous sight greets you. The blue frontage is monumental, yet airy, as if the building had been carved out of the sky. The frontage is a semi-transparent screen and the images projected onto the vast surfaces create constantly varying impressions which make the whole structure look as if it is in motion, organic and alluring.
Choral rock pop jazz and classic
Events at Koncerthuset will range widely in terms of size and genre: small-scale jazz concerts in the foyer, chamber music, choral, rock and pop concerts in the three smaller concert halls and symphony concerts, guest appearances and large scale rhythmic concerts in the large concert hall.
It will thus be possible to see, hear and experience DR's own orchestras and choirs: Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Danish National Chamber Orchestra, Danish National Vocal Ensemble, Danish National Concert Choir, Danish National Girls Choir, Danish National Childrens Choir, Danish National Sprouts Choir and DR Big Band. Together with guest performances and guest soloists from Denmark and abroad, we will strive to attain new musical heights. The same applies to rhythmical music, where DJs and bands will form new groundbreaking concepts.
