Special Concert Formats
It doesn’t always have to be a classical symphony concert in the evening. We also have quite different things to offer. See and hear for yourself – explore our concert series.
Chamber Music Soirées
We regularly invite internationally sought-after ensembles, who will introduce you to the diversity and colourfulness of the chamber music repertoire – in a wide variety of line-ups. Experience great classical music in a small format.
Chamber Music Soirées are given on Sunday evenings at the Tonhalle Maag.
Chamber Music at 5
Experience members of the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich in a variety of chamber music formations and discover another side of “your” musicians. There is a great deal of passion here: the musicians programme their concerts themselves and are able to interpret the pieces just as they wish. Get yourself in the mood for the concert in the Café at 4 and bring your children (from five years) with you. During the concert they will be working as musical detectives.
Chamber Music at 5 takes place on Sundays at 5 p.m. in the Johanneskirche church near Limmatplatz in Zurich.
Lunch Concerts: your lunchtime breather
We invite you to take a break from everyday life for three quarters of an hour over lunchtime. Our Lunch Concerts offer you the option between chamber music at Kaufleuten and an orchestral concert at the Tonhalle Maag. After the concert, savour lunch or a snack in the Foyer Tonhalle Maag or a restaurant nearby. Thereafter, you’ll be able to face your afternoon calmly and with a clear head.
Lunch Concerts are given on Thursdays at 12.15 p.m.
Literature & Music
Music serves to accompany stories and as a leitmotif in novels. Conversely, sagas, poems and stories have always inspired composers – there are innumerable links between literature and music. In our Literature & Music series, we and our guests explore these connections with relish. Discover literary and musical pearls and how they relate to each other.
The Literature & Music series will take place at Tonhalle Maag on Sundays at 11.15 a.m.
In our Série jeunes, you will make the acquaintance of marvellous talented young artists who already perform at an impressively high level. We have already welcomed such guests as Lang Lang, Yuja Wang or Igor Levit. Who knows which of them you will see again as soloists with us in a few years’ time? Don’t miss your rendezvous with the stars of tomorrow!
The Série jeunes concerts are given on Monday evenings at the Tonhalle Maag.
