Highlights

One of the most beautiful theatres in Paris, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, welcomes the Paris Chamber Orchestra this season in its sublimely colored and gold-adorned large hall. Forty-three musicians deploy all their talents to sublimate the works of Ravel, Haydn, Schumann, Cimarosa, Mozart, Danzi, Stravinsky, Strauss, Schubert, Beethoven, Brahms, Suk... under the fiery baton of conductor Lars Vogt.

 

Spectators will revel in famous melodies by well-known or, sometimes, forgotten composers. Intense concerts, an intimate yet grandiose atmosphere, an exceptional place! An unforgettable moment to savor together!

Story

Lars Vogt, a German pianist and conductor, has been responsible for the musical direction of the Paris Chamber Orchestra for a glorious two years. This orchestra welcomes a new generation of French musicians, which now makes it one of the youngest permanent orchestras in France. This season is an opportunity to discover these young talents through moving melodies such as Joseph Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 2, Boieldieu’s Harp Concerto, and Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto K. 622... Chamber music will be most appreciated in the pink and gold decor of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.
