“Small but impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2016 via mobile

Booked a ticket for the Grieg Piano Concerto evening. Did some research before and came suitably attired as they do state quite clearly no jeans, sandals, t shirts etc so not quite the place for the scruffy set.
The staff are all very professional and polite. Only gripe I had was the small bar with a rather limited selection of alcohol. Was disappointed that they do not offer bubbles so I settled for an average glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
The hall itself isn't quite that large but the seats are comfy and you get a good view of the stage from wherever you are seated. The tickets are reasonably price and I chose the most expensive Stall seats at RM150. The acoustics here are excellent and the decor quite stunning.
The MPO holds a regular and varied programme but shame it wasn't that well attended.

“Wonderful venue for music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2016

Although the variety of concerts is not what it was, if there is something on which appeals the venue is fabulous. The ticket prices won't break the bank either. If in KL have a look and see what's on

“MPO meets U2”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2016

We had a lovely evening of U2 music & song accompanied by the MPO. we had expected just the orchestra, which was already going to be exciting, then to our surprise there was a band and singer. It was a great evenings entertainment.

“Beautiful and intimate concert hall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2016

Yes, it's one of the smallest concert halls I've been through but the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas is actually a beautiful venue for performance arts. I've been here plenty of times to listen to world renowned musicians perform and the acoustics of this place is actually quite magnificent. The size of the venue, although small means that it is far more intimate and you feel a much more closer connection to the performer. My favourite has got to be Diana Krall's recent tour and Harry Connick, Jr.
