Henry Thacker Burleigh “Father of the Spiritual”, as well as copyist and assistant to Antonín Dvořák in America recorded and arranged many of the traditional Afro-American songs, including “Nobody knows …”. This spiritual is at the heart of Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s trumpet concerto which combines elements of jazz with compositions techniques of contemporary music.

Johannes Brahms admired Antonín Dvořák for his talent. “His musical left-overs would be enough for any other composer to piece together a principal theme,” was Brahms’ way of paying tribute to his colleague’s rich store of ideas. While Brahms constantly had to battle with himself and his compositions– the Damocles sword of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony hung over his head and that of the European music scene to such an extent that he abandoned his First Symphony multiple times – beautiful melodies just seemed to come to Dvořák. On the other hand, the acquaintance with Brahms was worth its weight in gold to Dvořák. His well-established colleague helped him to gain a foothold with the music publisher Simrock. One of the first works published by the company in 1877 was the Symphonic Variations.

Worth Knowing For Your Visit

  • Performance Venue Grosser Saal

    The event is taking place in the Großer Saal, the heart of the Historische Stadthalle. Its famous acoustics, spectacular sense of space under a ceiling that is 17 metres high, its décor and galleries take one’s breath away time and again.

Corona update

The FAQs for visitors and event organisers should answer questions concerning your visit or event organisation.

Directions

The Historische Stadthalle is located in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia and lies in the centre of Wuppertal-Elberfeld. We are easily reached by public transport. The ICE train station and local bus stops are in the immediate vicinity.

This is where you will find detailed directions.

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.

Accessibility

It goes without saying that the Historische Stadthalle is equipped to provide access for disabled people.

Wheelchair ramps and lifts (with announcement) will provide you with easy access to all rooms.

Parking spaces for disabled people are available both in the multi-storey car park and in the Südstrasse car park.

Toilets for disabled people can be found on the ground floor (to the right of the main entrance) at the eastern end of the foyer. They are clearly signposted.

A wheelchair is available in the building.

An unlimited number of wheelchair places is available in the Großer Saal.

Our concierge, foyer team and culinaria staff are happy to help should you need assistance at any time.
