Concert hall

In the Concert Hall of the Robert Schumann House, chamber concerts and lecture events are held on a regular basis. Along with some five chamber concerts per season of their own, the hall is also let to other organisers for all kinds of events, the musical spectrum ranging from early music up to jazz and salon music. The concerts and events of the International Robert Schumann Competitions for Piano and Voice (see here), the Junior Schumann Competition for Young Pianists and the Robert Schumann Choir Competition (see here) are also held at the Robert Schumann House.

Following several rebuilding phases, the hall now features underfloor heating, a new floor covering and movable seating. The inner courtyard adjoining the Concert Hall has been provided with a glass roof and now allows for the yard to be used during concert breaks or as an additional exhibition space. The atrium can be accessed from the Concert Hall via double French doors. Along with two modern grand pianos by Steinway & Sons (1991) and August Förster (1955), the historical keyboard instruments from the museum spaces are also used for concert purposes: Clara Wieck’s debut grand piano by André Stein (circa 1825), a Bösendorfer grand piano (circa 1870), a physharmonica (circa 1825), and a square piano by Rosenkranz (circa 1840). On individual events, advance booking, etc., cf.
