Story: Piano Passion Concerts

If you have never heard Schubert's Impromptu No. 2, Beethoven's Spring, Schumann's Forest Scenes, Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 5, or Carlos Gardel's arias? Well, now you have the opportunity to discover these marvels of the repertoire in a small medieval church in the heart of Paris that is almost unknown to the passers-by who hurry to the foot of the Notre-Dame. Situated in the shadow of the great cathedral, the church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre is the setting in which high-level professional artists meet to perform sumptuous pieces from the repertoire, either alone or in groups. Accompanied by an accordion, a cello, a violin, the voice of a soprano, a dancer, or all on its own, the piano can be listened to with passion and all types of passion are present in these lovely compositions.

Reviews

A treasure in a city full of them
"Attending a concert at this small, unpretentious and very very old church in Paris is one of those experiences you will remember forever. . . there is something about Saint Julien Le Pauvre that makes a concert there a mystical as well as musical delight."
Charlotte
Concerts in St Julien le Pauvre
"St Julien Le Pauvre with its East/West Legacy is an ideal oasis to reflect and meditate and just the perfect setting to enjoy piano concerts by talented international pianists from Chopin to Beethoven..."
Rosa
Awesome piano concert
"I could not image a concert in a church but was pleasantly surprised. What a spectacular evening. The chapel was truly one from a story book filled with history, romance and spirituality."

Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre Church

1 rue Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre - 75005 Paris

Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre Church


Almost in the shadow of Notre-Dame, opposite the Ile de la Cité, stands the church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre in the Latin Quarter, where the Christians of the East have been worshiping since 1889. It is the Greek-Melkite-Catholic church of Paris. You have certainly passed by this small medieval church without paying attention. However, it is well worth a visit! One of the oldest churches in Paris, its construction was launched at the same time as the construction of Notre-Dame. It boasts a beautiful slab from the ancient Roman road from Lutetia to Orleans, a magnificent wrought iron pulpit, and an icon of Saint Julien, also known as Saint Julien l'Hospitalier. Finally, if you want to see what a North American locust tree planted in 1602 looks like, we invite you to visit the garden next to this original church to discover one! It is considered the oldest tree in Paris! As we said, this church is really worth a visit!
