At the basis of the architectural concept of the concert hall, created by the excellent Austrian architect Prof. Volker Giencke, lies amber – the symbol of Liepāja and the Baltic Sea, as well as the concert hall’s function as a cultural and arts centre. Thus, its architecture is a portrait of music, frozen in time and in amber.
Its acoustics have been created by world leaders in their fields – Prof. Karlheinz Müller of Müller BBM, Germany, and Prof. Christian Bartenbach of Bartenbach, Germany, respectively.The city of Liepāja is like a lagoon, located between the Baltic Sea and the Liepāja lake. It is the third largest city in Latvia and its capital of music. Seems only natural that it now also has its own „Great Amber” concert hall.
The shape, unique interior and excellent acoustics of „Great Amber” permit to say that a visit to this centre of the culture of the Baltic Sea region will surely become an unforgettable experience!
