Home to the famous Moscow State Philharmonic (Moskovskaya Filharmonia), the capital’s oldest symphony orchestra, Tchaikovsky Concert Hall was established in 1921. It’s a huge auditorium, with seating for 1600 people. Expect to hear the Russian classics, such as Stravinsky, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich, as well as other European favourites. Look out for children’s concerts, jazz ensembles and other special performances.
