Concert Halls

Page 3. Every concert of an artist is a unique event. An ephemeral experience, a moment. Yet, many of them stay in the memory and the heart of the public and the artist himself. Every concert is an exchange of the energy between the artist and listeners, influenced by many factors, often very personal, difficult to grasp. Each of these moments has its unique soul and can never be truly re-lived, even if one attempts to capture it on a record. Ingolf Wunder performed in dozens of countries, hundreds of cities, often multiple times in the same venues. Here are some of the concert halls on his artistic journey.

Music. Energy. History.
