The refurbished Royal Festival Hall: inset, the hall in November 2000. Click here for a large version of the picture.
esterday was my first visit to a concert at the Royal Festival Hall since the two-year refurbishment. Earlier in the evening a lecture on the changes to the hall's acoustic treatment was given by Larry Kirkegaard, President of the firm responsible for the acoustic redesign. Ever since the hall opened in 1951 the acoustic has been the subject of much debate: hated by musicians (who had difficulty hearing themselves) and disliked by much of the audience. Numerous changes were made to the construction.
