The NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra - north Germany's equivalent of the BBC Symphony Orchestra or BBC Philharmonic - is resident at the amazing new Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, famous for its architecture, for its acoustics and for costing more than ten times as much as its original budget by the time it finally opened a year ago. This week Penny Gore presents a week of concerts by the orchestra and uncovers the story of its home base.
