As you approach DR Koncerthuset a fabulous sight greets you. Designed by the french architect Jean Nouvel, 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. Events at Koncerthuset 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. During the summer it becomes part of Copenhagen Jazz Festival and the theme ‘Concert Hall Events’, where major international artists such as Gregory Porter, Anoushka Shankar, Dianne Reeves, Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea and Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil are presented.
