Stadtcasino Basel: Reopening Concert
Helena Winkelman, violin
2020 the Stadtcasino in Basel reopens in new splendour. After renovation by the world-famous Basel architects Herzog & de Meuron, the beautiful hall dating from 1876 is once again used by the Sinfonieorchester Basel under its principal conductor Ivor Bolton. With a carnival fantasy for Basler drums and large orchestra we test the acoustics of the renovated concert hall.
