Small Philharmonic Hall

The magnificent creature by Rastrelli on Nevsky Prospekt of St. Petersburg is the Small Philharmonic Hall. In the past it was called House of Engelhardt, around which the entire musical life of the city went on. Originally it was built in 1759-1761 and later reconstructed in the 1829-1830 for V. Engelhardt. The concert hall of Engelhardt saw the famous composers of the 19th century: F. Liszt, and H. Berlioz, Mikhail Glinka, and A.G. Rubinstein. Within its walls balls and masquerades were arranged.
