perfect acoustics. historic district
Oct. 2019
Some of the pictures aren't right, as there is a large and a small hall, I think in different building. The small hall looks like a storefront on Nevsky Prospect. It's in a blue/tourquoise building across from, and a little down from Kazan Cathedral. It is surrounded by other businesses, so I had to look close to know I found the right place. Inside is pretty. The acoustics were beautiful. I enjoyed the concert. The seating was comfortable.

Superb acoustics
Feb. 2018 • Friends
What better place to spend an evening in SPb. Came to see a concert of the PetRo Duet, a hugely talented husband and wife piano duo. The acoustics and decoration in the hall are superb which made for a marvellous evening. Don't be put off by the title 'small hall' it its actually very grand and spacious.

Incorrect name
Jun. 2017 • Friends
Shostakovich Hall is the large hall of the Philharmonia, not the small hall. Its acoustics are world reknown. It also goes by the name of the Bolshoi Zal (large hall) whereas the small hall is the Malii Zal.

a wonderful "real" exerience
May 2016 • Couples
You can buy your tickets on line for a price much less than any other city. Beware it's the small hall, which means it's not where the main theatre is. Check out the map. We felt we were the only tourists, and the acoustics are wonderful. White armchairs with red velvet, Russian champage in the interval, everyone friendly. Do go, our concert started at 7.00 and finished around 9, perfect for heading off to a nice restaurant afterwards.

Tchaikovsky Competition
Jun. 2015
We came here to see the cello portion of the Tchaikovsky Competition. This was a fabulous evening of entertainment for an extremely low price. Listening to Haydn Concertos in these beautiful baroque interiors is what I live for.

Place where Onegin met Tatiana
May 2013 • Family
It may be the oldest and best known concert-hall of the city and maybe even Russia. Former Grand Hall of the Noble People it remembers lots of famous musicians such as List and Berlioz, to mention just two.Here, being in the complete blockade during the war-time, the Leningrad Philarmonic under the baton of legendary genius Evgenii Mravinsky first performed the famous 7th symphony by Shostakovitch. Here the last act of the 'Eugene Onegin' opera by Tchaikovsky starts. Onegin meets Tatiana as Duke's Gremin's wife at a ball there and falls in love. Very classical and atmospheric. Definitely worth a visit. Just a few steps from Nevsky prospect (Gostinniy Dvor), the Russian Museum and Mikhailovsky theater.

Impressive acoustics
Dec. 2011
This concert hall has the most wonderous acoustics you may dream of I can only think of the Wigmore Hall inn London if I want to pick a venue of similar attraction for chamber music.
Artistic management is under the St. Petersburg Philarmonic, so you can rest assured about consistent musical excellence. I heard a performance of the Kremerata Baltica led by the grest violinist Gidon Kremer. An evening to remember!

Main music venue
Jun. 2011
This is definitely one of the most prestigious music venues in town, once - place of gathering of nobility, masquerades. In Soviet time - place where Dmitry Shostakovich had his first performances until late years. Style of the hall - late rococo of mid-nineteenth century.
It is used mainly for chamber concerts and solo recitals.
