Philharmonie de Paris

If Paris were to be defined in terms of monuments, we would include the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Pyramid, the Opéra Garnier, and the Opéra Bastille to name a few.. But from this list the Philharmonie de Paris is surely missing! This impressive monument, inaugurated on January 15th, 2015, is dedicated to symphonic music, chamber music, jazz and world music. Composed of over 340,000 aluminum shiny plates, its impressive facade of the Philharmonie de Paris has become a famous landmark of north-eastern Paris.


All types of music can be found at the Philharmonie de Paris. This venue hosts orchestras such as the Orchestre de Paris, Les Arts Florissants, the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France and welcomes major international orchestras, conductors, and musicians who make their difficult scores look easy as they perform them for 2,400 astonished spectators. The acoustic excellence of the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez, entrusted to New Zealand’s Sir Harold Marshall and Japan’s Yasuhisa Toyota, creates particularly favorable conditions for listening to pianissimo, pizzicato, or even delicate harp chords.


The soft colors of the blond wood featured in the hall paired with the balconies, which seem to loom weightless, create a real sense of intimacy, especially since the distance between the conductor and the closest listener is a mere 32 meters! A hall that holds a sense of esteemed intimacy despite its size, and with an international and varied programme... You must experience it for yourself first-hand!
