Munich might finally give Mariss his concert hall

When Mariss Jansons became chief conductor at Bavarian Radio, it was on condition that the city build a new concert hall, the present facilities being acoustically appalling. That was in 2003.

Yesterday, the city earmarked a site for the hall. It’s the disused congress centre of the Deutsches Museum, itself due for a Euro 400 million uplift.

Mariss is a patient man, but this process seems to be taking forever. More here.

    Whatever happened to the Herkulessaal? I worked there in the 1980’s on a Mozart project with R. Kubelik and it was a fabulous sound.
